We will be hosting an open house on Saturday, May 21, from Noon-2 p.m., at our campus. Potential clients, volunteers, or anyone who might be interested in supporting the organization is invited to attend to learn how an assistance dog changes the life of a person with a disability.

We are especially excited to offer this open house, because there is currently a minimal wait list for some types of assistance dogs. All Can Do Canines dogs are provided to clients free of charge.

There is no pre-registration for this event, so please join us on May 21. You will be asked to share some contact information at our registration table, upon arrival.

Take a virtual tour of our campus.

Through a self-guided tour, attendees can:
