Canine Companions for Independence is the best! My time helping with this organization is so meaningful to me. DogFest is a great deal of fun to both plan and attend. Seeing all of the team’s hard work come to fruition on event day is so rewarding. Meeting the graduate teams of the people and the dogs who help them be more independent is so inspiring! It is both adorable and exciting to see the puppy raisers with their puppies, and to know that they are on their journey to becoming service dogs who can help people be more independent. I highly recommend participating with this organization in any opportunity you are able!
