Can Do Canines is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities by creating mutually beneficial partnerships with specially trained dogs.
The program carefully selects homeless dogs, often from local animal shelters, as well as donated dogs from breeders and individuals, and trains them. The dog, professional training and interpreting services, obedience instruction, medical care, food and supplies are provided to qualifed individuals at no charge. We are supported by donations from individuals and corporations. We do not receive donations or grants from any form of government.
I have been volunteering at Can Do Canines for the past 2 years in many different areas. The best feeling our family can get is watching one of the puppies we raised and train become a certified service dog. The staff is fun to work with and the training staff is top notch! They are willing to help with any questions we have. Take a tour and see what greatness this organization achieves, but bring kleenex because I promise it will move your heart.

This is a fanstic organization that truly cares about their mission of providing service dogs to people who need them free of charge.
There are also many different capacities to help them, from office work, to special events,to raising a puppy, to watching dogs while their regular raiser is out of town. It has been a great match for me, becasue there are many things that I can do in the free time of my busy schedule.
