COPE Service Dogs is a unique organization that raises and trains service dogs primarily for people with mobility disabilities.  The true heart of our mission is to empower students to face and overcome their own challenges while training our service dogs alongside our service dog instructors.   COPE has a program called Canines in the Classroom that allows students to earn credits while learning essential literacy and workplace skills.  We are passionate about the ideals of community engagement, volunteerism and building contributing citizens both human and canine alike.  Please click on any of the links in our website or reach out and contact us to find out more.
