Supporting those who look out for the animals we love so much
Service dogs can do remarkable things. And when Canine Assistants pairs them with special people, something even more extraordinary happens – they become heroes. We #CelebrateTheBond these devoted companions share as they show us the power of the human-dog connection. That’s why Elanco, the maker of Comfortis® (spinosad), proudly sponsors Canine Assistants. It’s a 501(3)c nonprofit organization that trains and provides service dogs to enhance and improve the lives of children and adults who have physical disabilities, seizure conditions or other special needs.
Founded in 1991, the organization has paired more than 1,500 service dogs with deserving companions. Each year, Canine Assistants places between 75 and 100 dogs—free of charge—to serve as therapy dogs, diabetic alert dogs and epilepsy service dogs.1 From mobility difficulties to medical concerns including epilepsy, diabetes and cancer, each dog is matched with a recipient for a lifetime of companionship and love.
