CLICK HERE TO HELP GCI CHANGE A LIFE!


GEORGIA CANINES FOR INDEPENDENCE

Georgia Canines for Independence (GCI) is dedicated to improving the quality of life of people living with physical disabilities and other special needs.

GCI provides trained service dogs to increase the independence of people with various medical conditions including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, cerebral palsy, Friedrich's ataxia, Guillain-Barre syndrome, multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, spinal cord injury, stroke, and seizure disorders.

Did you know?

Insurance does not cover assistance animals or animal therapy.


Yet, GCI gives every service dog away at absolutely no cost to someone in need. There is absolutely no charge to apply for or to receive a canine partner.

 

 

Service dogs increase independence, self-esteem, and social interactions.

Many service dogs have provided their owner the ability to attend school and gain employment.

Service dog ownership has been associated with improved health, fewer doctors visits, and better self-care.


In the U.S., about 1200 people apply for a service dog every year, while only about 500 assistance dogs are placed annually.



Most people wait many years
to receive a service dog.

You can help GCI change a life today!

 

 

Georgia Canines for Independence is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
