Canine Partners for Life makes every attempt to select or breed dogs that will be successful in our service, home companion, or residential companion dog programs. There are some dogs however, who are not suitable. These dogs may have a physical or behavioral issue that indicates we should release them from the program. Interested individuals or families who would like to adopt one of CPL’s released dogs should complete a released dog application.
The Program Assistant will contact applicants when a suitable dog becomes available and will invite them to visit with their new potential pet. The reason for each dog’s release is always shared with the new potential owners. Due to the success of our selection and breeding process, the number of released dogs is relatively small.
