Tel Hai’s Life Enrichment Committee welcomes the public to a presentation by Canine Partners for Life on Monday, November 24 at 2:00pm in the campus chapel.
Canine Partners for Life (CPL), located in Cochranville, Chester County, is a non-profit organization dedicated to training service dogs, home companion and residential companion dogs to assist individuals who have a wide range of physical and cognitive disabilities. To date, CPL has placed more than 600 service and companion dogs in 43 states throughout the country. As a leader in the assistance dog industry, CPL was one of the first organizations in the world to be accredited by Assistance Dogs International. They are one of only a few service dog organizations nationwide to train, support and sustain seizure and cardiac alert service dogs.
Recipients of CPL service dogs come from all walks of life and face a variety of challenges in daily living. The total cost to raise, train, place and provide lifetime support for each CPL dog is estimated to exceed $29,000. CPL uses a sliding scale based on recipient income to determine the requested donation; this typically ranges between $1,000 and $3,000. No one is denied a canine partner because of their inability to pay, however.
