The happiest place on earth just got a little happier...

A group of our volunteer puppy raisers recently took their pups to Disneyland with them!

Canine Companions for Independence


All of the dogs are part of the non-profit Canine Companions for Independence and were able to get in a little vacation time while also learning the necessary socialization skills they will need as they become life companions. All of the different sights, sounds, smells, and people that Disneyland has to offer certainly got their attention -- and as you can see, some of the characters did, as well.

And what would a trip to Disney be without some festive costumes? The lovable canines all wore their favorite Mickey Mouse ears and Minnie bows and, honestly, they blended right in with their adorable smiles!

Canine Companions for Independence trains dogs to help veterans, children, and adults who have disabilities accomplish everyday tasks.

Founded in 1975, the non-profit organization enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support at no cost to the recipients.
