Hi Friends and Family! Cort and I wanted to select a charity that we both support and believe in. CCI is a great organization that gives people with disabilities independences. Canine Companions for Independence's mission is to provide highly-trained assistance dogs to adults, children and veterans with disabilities FREE of charge.
Canine Companions is an organization that we've come to know through Mindy's neighbors in Vermilion. Over the years, the Sommer family helped raised 7 puppies (3 are currently “working dogs”, 2 became pets, 1 is currently in advanced training and Kinsman is still at home being trained). We had the pleasure of puppy-sitting Kinsman. He was so fun to have in our house but forgot the effort that goes into raising a puppy. Gizzy (our cat) was happy to see him go but we missed having his little personality in our home. We’ve also attended a few “graduations” where dogs officially get placed with people by the organization. That was truly something special to witness and getting to see how the dogs interact with people giving them the independence they’ve never experienced.
Did you know?
Each Canine Companions assistance dog is specially matched with a person with a disability. The connection and bond that the team has is incredible! These dogs not only open doors, pick up dropped items and turn on light switches, they provide greater independence and an amazing life-time partnership.
Please help us reach our fundraising goal by making a tax-deductible contribution. Your gift will help open more doors for people with disabilities. Every dollar counts! Together, we can change lives four paws at a times.
