Canine Companions for Independence
New Albany Headquarters
A light-filled headquarters on a green oasis, supporting one of the largest Canine Companions training facilities.
Canine Companions is the largest provider of assistance dogs in the world. The highly trained dogs serve the special needs of disabled children, adults and veterans—offering ongoing training free of charge.
Since 1975, Canine Companions works to offer independence to those in need, regardless of socioeconomic status. The expanded campus opens up new avenues for holistic support.
Universally designed to accommodate anyone seeking training, the sprawling 16-acre site includes an administration building, kennel, training facility and guest house.
The organization hosts four graduation ceremonies per year, where the dogs are teamed with their new recipient and spend two weeks training together. The new campus allows on-site housing during training periods, a service made possible by the expanded site.
