The human-animal bond is such a special thing, and we’re happy to do our part to help. We hope you enjoy the photos of Auburn and her 8 puppies, 5 boys and 3 girls! These pups will go on to train to be service dogs for Canine Companions for Independence! They will be socialized, trained, and hopefully will one day become service dogs!

Volunteer puppy raisers provide specially-bred puppies a safe home, take them to obedience classes, serve up a healthy diet, provide socialization opportunities and give lots of love.

Each hour spent caring for a Canine Companions puppy is vital to its development as a future assistance dog. The puppy raising program provides a unique opportunity for volunteers to assist with our very important mission.

Please note: You must be at least 18 years old to be a volunteer puppy raiser. Those under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian as a co-applicant on the puppy raiser application.
