Changing Lives Together
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on our work, significantly reducing our numbers of fully trained assistance dogs ready to be partnered and change someone’s life. These dogs are a vital lifeline, providing support and companionship to their disabled partner.
We urgently need funds to help reach even more disabled people who could benefit from our life-changing assistance dogs.
Our 36-hour Changing Lives Together appeal runs from 9am on 3 July to 9pm on 4 July. This special, matched funding appeal, aims to raise urgently needed funds to help more disabled people live their life to the full. Every donation to the appeal will be DOUBLED – so your support will have TWICE the impact – helping us increase the number of puppies in our programme, deliver expert training and reduce our waiting list numbers so that we can begin to grow the number of partnerships we create over the next two years. Visit https://www.charityextra.com/caninepartners to donate and find out more.
Our assistance dogs are specially trained to meet the needs of individuals with even the most complex physical disabilities. Our dedicated trainers, supported by amazing puppy and dog volunteers, carefully train and match our dogs for the needs of their partner. We are committed to supporting each of our partnerships through their working life together and our vision is that every disabled person lives their life to the full.
