Canine Companions for Independence

Byers Subaru DublinProud Supporters of Canine Companions for Independence

For people living with disabilities, common tasks that are easy to take for granted can prove more difficult to manage. So what better way to provide support than by lending the helping paw of a furry friend who assists willingly and loves unconditionally? Through Canine Companions for Independence, with a campus located in New Albany, Ohio, impactful teams form and dogs are provided to help aid in the day-to-day routine of disabled participants.

Byers Subaru Dublin is proud to support this important initiative and promote the difference-making work of Canine Companions for Independence to help spread awareness and get more people involved in this program! Review more program specifics and the ways you can help with a detailed event outline below.

How the Program Works

Through Canine Companions for Independence, participants are partnered with a program-approved dog for multiple training sessions and interactive exercises. If the partnership is deemed an appropriate fit, these graduate teams are then paired for the foreseeable future, helping to support quality of life and generate plenty of smiles in the process.

The Canine Companions Difference

There are several success stories that help highlight the difference of this Canine Companions for Independence Program, an organization the team at Byers Subaru Dublin proudly supports. Janie, a PhD candidate in the department of Disability and Human Development at The University of Illinois at Chicago, has worked with a service dog named Haven since 2015. Haven assists in retrieving medication and motivates Janie to strike up conversations with new people. For Josh, a disabled U.S. military veteran, his skilled companion dog Debra helps with physical therapy and daily tasks, naturally providing plenty of fun moments and warm interactions throughout.

How You Can Help

The new North Central Campus, set to replace the program's current outgrown facility, will serve as the foundation for future Canine Companions for Independence program success. From canine companions and local community gatherings to staff, 44 state-of-the-art kennels, training spaces and guest rooms all hosted under one roof, the process becomes seamless. Issues such as renting additional space and hosting meetings off-site no longer become relevant.
