Abilities Expo


The CAST crew participated in a booth at the recent Abilities Expo in Los Angeles. Staff and Board members, graduate families and many volunteers we on hand to talk to attendees about our program. Some of our people and pups also conducted demonstrations in the main arena to educate the crowd about assistance dogs and how they can help their partners. Thank you to Abilities Expo for including Canine Angels once again!

Service Dog Eye Exam

The ACVO/StokesRx National Service Animal Eye Exam event is a philanthropic effort generously provided to the public by participating board certified Diplomates of the American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists who donate their time, staff and services to provide complimentary screening eye exams to qualified Service Animals. Over 30,000 animals have received these free screening exams over the past seven years.


Canine Angels asks for all puppy raisers to schedule a free exam for their pups, and we highly encourage all working teams to participate in this program every year. Registration begins April 1st, closes April 30th. Examinations are May 1-31st.
