COPE Service Dogs can’t say thanks enough to Ralph and Sandy Price on their hard work organizing the Fiddle Jam/Dance/Square Dance as part of National Fiddle Day. Donations continue to pour in, $2200 and still counting! Big thank you to all who donated with a special shout out going out to R&F Construction Inc DKI Inc. Orillia for their generous donation. Everybody had a good time and was up dancing…even the dogs! Molly, Daxon and Henry, our COPE Service Dogs, managed to get a dance in as well! Find out more COPE Service Dogs and how you can help us raise much needed funds to continue our Service Dog Training & Canines In The Classroom Program.
COPE Service Dogs is incredibly proud of our schools, teacher, students, and volunteers, and of course, our hard-working puppies in with Canines In The Classroom. CIC just wrapped up at our two new expansion schools in Mississauga. CIC is not only making a huge impact on these high school students, but these puppy-student teams are also making a difference with children in Buddy Reading. Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you in September.
Some amazing photos from our wrap up day for CIC; thanks to Jacquie Labatte Photography for capturing the day.

WELCOME TO THE FAMILY
COPE Service Dog Sierra just had seven puppies! Mom & pups are doing GREAT while staying at Dogs with Wings in Edmonton. Sierra & two of her pups will return to COPE at the end of July. We are still looking for fosters for these two new puppies and we have a one year old pup who will need a foster home at around the same time. Find out more on COPE’s Fostering Program below.
