Raising Puppies for a Good Cause

How would you like to raise puppies for a charitable cause? A charity program allows you to do just that, with back-up.

Canine Companions for Independence – a non-profit group that offers assistance dogs for people with physical disabilities – has teamed up with veterinary supplies company Henry Schein Animal Health to supply volunteer puppy-raisers with the supplies they need to bring up the next generation of assistance dogs.

Under the program, each Canine Companions ‘puppy raiser’ and the veterinarian who cares for the dog will receive a “Henry Schein Cares-Canine Companions Puppy Raiser Care Package.”

These care packages include products essential for raising the puppy during the first 18 months of life. They are meant to help defray the cost the volunteer incurs in raising the puppy by providing products and coupons directly to the veterinarian that cares for the puppy.

You can find out more about the program at www.cci.org.
