All We need is FurCare!


Our team here at Burke and Burke Insurance is vested in giving back in extended ways. Hence, we are supporting Canine Companions which is a charity that matches service dogs with those who need it most. From adults, children, and veterans with disabilities to facility dogs to help professionals working in healthcare, criminal justice, and educational settings. Since their founding in 1975, their dogs and all follow-up services are provided at no cost to their clients.

Canine Companions’ dogs can be trained to perform a variety of tasks. Dogs are placed in teams that will utilize their training and celebrate their unique spirits. Some service dogs are trained in hearing and they alert their partners to key sounds by making physical contacts such as nudging the leg or arm. There are also others who are skilled companion dogs who are trained to work with an adult or children with a disability. There are also trained facility dogs that are expertly trained and partnered with a facilitator working in a health care, visitation, or education setting.

Canine Companions recognizes the urgent and growing need for programs that provide support to veterans with disabilities. Therapy dogs accompany their owner into specific settings or as part of a therapeutic intervention. Independence shouldn’t be limited to those who look or live a certain way. Disability reaches all races, classes, and backgrounds, and Canine Companions will too.

You can take part in our agency’s efforts by recommending a friend or family member to us for a free no-obligation quote, for which in return we will donate $20 in your name to this foundation. Nothing better than matching a furry friend with a human companion.
