Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) was founded in 1974 to breed, raise, and train dogs for people with any disability other than vision.  The dogs fall into the following four categories:  1. Service dogs for those with physical limitations.  2.  Hearing impaired 3. Skilled companions, usually for those with emotional issues such as autism and veterans with PTSD 4.  Facility dogs for institutions working with adults and children facing health and/or emotional issues such as hospitals and schools.  These dogs are available at no charge to those who apply and are accepted.

Lions Project for CCI (LPCCI) was formed in 1976 to support CCI.  If any club would like a presentation, please contact Thomas Martin, Trustee for District 2-E2, LPCCI,
