For those disabled individuals dependent on the assistance of a service dog, there are not many more valuable things in life than those adorable pups we see do amazing things and you'll have a chance on Oct. 28 to show your support for them and Canine Companions, an organization behind the program that makes service animals possible.
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. Headquartered in Santa Rosa, they are the largest non-profit provider of assistance dogs, and is recognized worldwide for the excellence of its dogs, and the quality and longevity of the matches it makes between dogs and people.
All the fun begins at 11 a.m. over at Jack London Square on Broadway in Oakland. There are various ways you can participate and help raise much-needed funds for Canine Companions. You can register and learn more about this event on their web site.
