You can help provide independence to an individual with a disability by raising a puppy for CPL! Volunteer Puppy homes provide a loving and safe environment for a CPL puppy to live for their first year of life. During that one-year period, volunteers are responsible for raising the puppy in accordance with all CPL policies and procedures, including housebreaking, crate training, vet visits, teaching basic obedience commands, and socializing the puppy in public locations every day. Puppy homes are also required to attend at least two training classes per month at CPL.
Karen Kral, a volunteer puppy home for CPL shares, “Canine Partners lets us watch the pups grow, learn their commands, and show just how intelligent and willing they are to help. When they leave us, they’re not leaving the world but going on to make a huge difference for someone. To hear the recipients’ stories and see what the dogs mean to them and what they can do to let the partners shine is priceless and humbling.”
