Can Do Canines is a nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities by creating mutually beneficial partnerships with specially trained dogs.

We are very excited that you are interested in being a part of our volunteer program! Volunteers are the heart and soul of what we do and have a major impact on the life of the person who will eventually receive the dog. We provide knowledgeable training staff supporting you, dog food, basic vet care and lots of training opportunities. You provide a loving home and basic dog supplies while taking the dog in public and to trainings as specified by your role.

Breeder Hosts are volunteers who care for our breeding females and males by attending monthly training classes, taking the dog on public outings, and being available for veterinary and breeding appointments as needed.

Application information can be found by visiting volunteer.candocanines.org.

Mission Statement

Can Do Canines is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities by creating mutually beneficial partnerships with specially trained dogs.

Description

Our assistance dogs fetch amazing things. They provide the gifts of freedom, independence, and peace of mind to our clients and their families. These wonderful canines are often adopted from local animal shelters and are specially trained for our clients who live with disabilities that involve mobility challenges, hearing loss or deafness, seizure disorders, autism, or diabetes complicated by hypoglycemia unawareness. Dogs, training and supplies are provided to each client free of charge thanks to the work of dedicated volunteers and contributions from generous individuals, corporations, foundations and service groups like the Lions.
