About The Wounded Veterans Initiative

Canine Companions for Independence has provided many assistance dogs to US war veterans across the country. With the increase in wounded veterans who could benefit from an assistance dog we want to do more. Since 1992, Canine Companions has placed 104 dogs serving military veterans, with the number of dogs placed tripling since 2008. Many of the dogs have been placed with men and women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan and returned with spinal cord injuries, limb amputations and deafness.
