This national organization has many opportunities for  volunteers willing to help achieve its goal of providing highly trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities.  Volunteers are integral to the success of this program and are needed to do everything from raising CCI puppies to general office work.  Volunteers provide the person-power at events, and staff information booths at fairs and expos.  They also speak to various service groups about CCI and the benefits of having an assistance dog.
