“Founded in 1975, Canine Companions for Independence is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships.”
Service animals are known for helping their owners who have impaired vision, hearing, or limited mobility. What research suggests and what many people don’t know is that there are many other benefits for service animals in the psychiatric realm. For instance, children and adults with special needs, mental disorders, and PTSD.
Let’s meet Gabe. He’s a Marine who was injured during his second deployment to Afghanistan and consequently lost both of his legs. Now Gabe has Service Dog Wonka to help him with daily tasks like retrieving his prosthetic legs from the floor when he’s using his wheelchair. Not only that, Wonka is Gabe’s best pal and is always there to boost his morale when Gabe’s feeling a little “down”.
We are so proud to support Canine Companions and to know that they give veterans like Gabe independence. Join us and find out how you can help!
