CareCredit® supports Canine Companions® service dogs with generous $50,000 donation
OCEANSIDE, Calif. – CareCredit, a leading promotional financing solution for health, veterinary, and personal care is supporting Canine Companions for Independence, a nonprofit organization that provides expertly trained service dogs to people with disabilities, in a big way this holiday season.
Canine Companions’ Black Lab Friday kicks off on November 27, and the nonprofit is inviting everyone to put a little “Lab” in their heart by donating to help them continue to provide service dogs to those who need them. From Black Friday through Giving Tuesday, your gift to Canine Companions will be matched – dollar for dollar, up to $150,000 – thanks to the generosity of CareCredit, The Sproule Family and an anonymous donor.
Canine Companions service dogs are trained in over 40 commands to help provide enhanced independence to children, adults and veterans with disabilities and provided free of charge to recipients.
“Now more than ever, people are investing in their pets, and at CareCredit we truly understand that they are part of the family,” said Jonathan Wainberg, Senior Vice President and GM for CareCredit Pet. “We are thrilled to be partnering on this initiative that will enrich the lives of numerous children, allowing for more independence and also building a long-lasting partnership between the recipient and the service dog.”
