Canine Companions for Independence is a Sonoma County Original, founded more than 35 years ago by the legendary Bonnie Bergin. But that’s another story entirely. Today Canine Companions is the largest assistant dog organization in the world with training facilities and operations nationwide and internationally. Headquartered in Santa Rosa, the non-profit 501(c)3 foundation provides highly- trained assistance dogs and ongoing support that enhance the lives of people with disabilities. This week’s speaker will be Michelle Lewis and her dog Angel. Michelle, a wife, mother of two young children, and an amputee, and Angel have asked that we spread the word to Rotarians and their guests that they can bring their CCI dogs with them meeting next Wednesday.
