Canine Assistants is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating the dogs who are changing the World. We specialize in working with children and adults who have physical disabilities, seizure disorders or other special needs.
Service dogs can provide assistance in a variety of ways including, turning on and off lights, opening and closing doors, retrieving dropped objects, summoning help, and providing secure companionship. In addition, our dogs are wonderful social facilitators breaking down barriers that might remain indefinitely without their presence.
Another program Canine Assistants provides is our Children's Hospital Initiative. Medical personnel now understand the incredible benefits of dogs - from stabilizing blood pressure to reducing the pain and fear suffered by patients. Dogs are proving every day that they are among the very best medicine modern science has to offer.
Canine Assistants has placed over 60 dogs as “employees” in hospitals throughout the country and more are in the works: Atlanta, GA - Dallas, TX - Kansas City, MO - Cincinnati, OH - Fort Worth, TX - Ann Arbor, MI - Greenville, SC, - Houston, TX – Hershey, PA and more.
The dogs of Canine Assistants spend their lives making the world a happier, healthier place. Their work is made possible by the support of those who recognize that aiding the independent, education, and wellbeing of one benefits us all.
