The demand for well-trained and socialized service dogs in Colorado is very high and growing. Our goal is to meet the needs of more Coloradans with severe, life-changing disabilities by matching them with highly-skilled assistance dogs.
Canine Partners of the Rockies (CaPR) relies heavily on its passionate and enthusiastic volunteers and donors to fulfill its mission. We invite you to help us support Nugget and his canine friends become life-long service dog partners.
Every donation, no matter the amount, has an amazing impact. You can easily track your contribution here or on our Facebook page.
Raise a Puppy, Change a Life
Becoming a fully trained and happy service dog demands a fun and rewarding puppy-hood. The fun and rewards are not just for the puppies, though! Volunteer Puppy Raisers train basic commands and manners to our young puppies until they are ready for the next step in the journey to full service dogs, around eighteen months.
As a future service dog, the puppy is allowed to go anywhere with the Puppy Raiser, giving the puppy experience in a variety of social contexts. Bring your puppy with you to the movies or the store! Curious dog-lovers will greet you with smiles and questions. Also, puppy and Raiser will get to attend weekly obedience classes, with resident dog experts giving the latest advice and knowledge on how to raise a great dog. And because CaPR is a non-profit organization, puppy raising expenses are tax deductible.

Want to Change a Life?…Raise a Puppy!
Canine Partners of the Rockies (CaPR) is looking for two energetic volunteers to raise puppies to become service dogs for Coloradan’s with mobility challenges.
The basic requirements for puppy raisers include physically, emotionally and financially caring for the puppy for approximately 18 months and attending weekly puppy training classes at our facility in Aurora.
