Mission & Goals:

Our mission is to provide a remarkable high school education program that engages and empowers students and communities in the training of service dogs to help people with mobility disabilities.

How your contribution helps:

COPE Service Dogs helps struggling secondary school students stay in high school until graduation by involving them in a two year service dog training program which is unique in Canada. The high school student handlers and their dogs work with elementary children to improve their literacy skills by encouraging struggling elementary readers to read to the dogs. Our service dogs-in-training along with their student handlers also brighten the days of seniors in hospitals and nursing homes through our student-dog visitation program. Once our service dogs are fully trained, they go on to help people with serious mobility disabilities. Our service dogs help more than 40 people during the training period.
