The JDR team and our furry friends were happy to support the Canine Companions DogFest Walk ‘n Roll for the 3rd consecutive year. 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. DogFest Walk ‘n Roll raised over $125,000 this year!
Veterans Day is a particularly relevant time to highlight the good work of Canine Companions for Independence, which has provided assistance dogs to US war veterans across the country. For a veteran making a new start putting their life back together after an injury, an assistance dog can provide the help they need to regain independence. Visit the Canine Companions site to see personal stories and videos featuring veterans and their four-legged friends.
