Capital Campaign

Canine Partners for Life is proud to announce The Partnership for Independence Campaign! All site work has been prepared for the future site of the Mollie and Minor Barringer Training Center!

Mollie and Minor Barringer Training Center

Canine Partners for Life is actively moving forward with construction of a brand new Training Center. This building will include a simulated apartment to provide a space for dogs to train and practice service skills to assist with daily living activities. The training center will also include a  warming kitchen to support onsite activities and events, additional handicapped restrooms equipped with adult changing stations, and a large new training room, the Gerret and Tatiana Copeland Education Hall.

“Our parents loved dogs, especially Labs, for their friendly disposition and their intelligence. When they learned of the work of CPL, they were captivated by the idea that these qualities could serve to increase people’s independence and activity – states of being in the world that they valued highly. This use of an animal’s native abilities and bond to humans seemed to them an inspired partnership. After Mom died in 2012, CPL became even more important to our father – as a reminder of their shared passion, but also as a fascinating topic and a comforting link to the animal world. He treasured his “socialization” visits from puppies, and followed closely the ongoing research into the origins, nature, and uses of canine intelligence. He was proud to support the mission of CPL and in particular the work of training these amazing dogs for their work with their human partners.”
