About the Charity
Can Do Canines is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for people with disabilities by creating mutually beneficial partnerships with specially trained dogs.
Since 1989, Can Do Canines has provided more than 600 assistance dogs to people with disabilities.
Our fully-trained dogs, sometimes adopted from local animal shelters, are provided to clients with mobility challenges, hearing loss or deafness, seizure disorders, diabetes complicated by hypoglycemia unawareness or children with autism.
It costs more than $25,000 to train and graduate an assistance dog team, start to finish. However, all assistance dogs are provided to clients free of charge.
Can Do Canines is the largest provider of assistance dogs in Minnesota and relies on individual contributions to support its important work.
