    These people breed and sell dogs and make a lot of money draining this fake charity!

    It's not real charity! They make a PROFIT.

    Dogs for the Deaf, on the other hand, retrains shelter dogs. They are a REAL charity.

    It is a non-profit. Even if it wasn't, who criticizes organizations blending charity, children/people and animals?
    Dogs for the Deaf sounds amazing… but I believe there's room in the world for multiple charities like this.

    Re: lopezfanyeah – As the staff veterinarian for Canine Assistants let me say we have never sold our service dogs. Since 1991, we have given away over 1000 service dogs to the adults and children who need their help at zero cost. We are the only program I know of which also provides dog food and veterinary care for our graduates if they need it. Many of our clients have such excessive personal medical bills they cannot afford dog food. We do not think this should preclude them from benefiting from the assistance of a service dog. Canine Assistants is a 4-star charity (highest ranking) with Charity Navigator and $0.93 of every dollar benefits the people we help. You were correct, however, in your support of Dogs for the Deaf. They are another great program helping make peoples lives better.

    What is wrong with lopezfanyeah?? All he/she does is talk uninformed trash… and now goes after a worthwhile charity? (click his name to see the rest of the garbage). Wow. Perez, please take the trash out.

    Watch the special that just aired on PBS - "Through a Dog's Eyes". I've been to the farm and met the family… if it's "for profit", they sure do hide it well because they live a very modest lifestyle that revolves around nothing but the dogs and the people they serve.
