  • Mission:
  • The mission of Can Do Canines is to enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities by creating mutually beneficial partnerships with specially trained dogs. The organization’s goal is to help create a future where everyone who needs and wants an assistance dog can have one.

  • Overview:
  • Can Do Canines is the largest provider of assistance dogs in Minnesota. As of March 2014, Can Do Canines has trained and placed 453 assistance dogs since its founding in 1987. The types of assistance dogs trained include Hearing, Mobility, Diabetes, Seizure Response and Autism Assist Dogs. Can Do Canines depends entirely upon community support to cover its operations. It costs about $25,000 to train and place an assistance dog. Because the cost is prohibitive for most clients, they are provided to them at no cost. Can Do Canines believes expense should never be a barrier for clients when an assistance dog is needed and wanted.

  • History:
  • For 25 years Can Do Canines has been giving new beginnings to individuals with disabilities by providing them with highly trained assistance dogs free of charge. The organization began in 1987 as the Hearing Dog Program of Minnesota, placed its first dog in 1989, and in 1995 changed its name to Hearing and Service Dogs of Minnesota. To better reflect the diversity of assistance dog programs now provided, the organization began doing business as Can Do Canines in 2010.
