Covid 19 continued to keep us on our toes! It may have slowed us down but it certainly did not stop us!
Volunteer engagement is up in 2022! COPE now has fifteen volunteer drivers dedicated to getting our puppies to school in Barrie, Innisfil and Mississauga. We have fifteen puppy fosters and thirty-six puppy sitters who are giving these puppies an excellent start to a future life of service. Let’s not forget our many community canines owners who bring their dogs to Canines in the Classroom, Reading Buddy and our many seniors visits. Many thanks you all!
2022 was a great year for our signature events. The Mother’s High Tea was virtual again this but was very well received! With our Canines in the Classroom Expansion, we saw an update in tickets being sold in Mississauga.
Buddy Paddles Simcoe transformed into Buddy Up for COPE and smashed our goal to bring in over $45,000.
Money raised through third party events continue to be so important to COPE Service Dogs. We would like to say thanks to the many generous volunteers who help organize The National Fiddle Day, Glow Day Spa Pawdicure and The Samsara Saint’s Ride for COPE.
