What We Do

Our national program provides quality, trained service dogs free of charge to veterans with service-connected disabilities. All of the dogs that we use are rescued from local shelters.

Interesting Info

We have partnered well over 100 dogs with individuals with disabilities.
Each Canines for Service dog is valued at over $54,000 when fully trained, but is partnered with a veteran at absolutely no cost.
1.5 million animals are euthanized in US shelters annually. Using shelter dogs saves the life of the dog we rescue, and also opens up kennels for more dogs.
