The mission of CPL is to increase the independence and quality of life of individuals with physical, developmental, and cognitive disabilities or who are in other situations of need. Since its inception, CPL has placed more than 700 service and companion dogs in 45 states.
CPL’s service dogs go through an intense two-year training program. In addition to learning advanced obedience and social skills, they learn techniques to help people with disabilities meet the challenges of daily living. CPL’s programs include:
Since it was chosen as one of our local charities of choice in 2010, West has had a special relationship with CPL. For the past nine years, West has continued to support and be involved with CPI, including through its team members who have raised and fostered service dogs. Two of our very own team members, Janet Cooper, Manager, Administrative Services and Erin O’Brien, VP Product Management and Marketing Operations feel very passionate about CPL’s mission and take every opportunity to spread the word about the impact service and home companion dogs have on people’s lives by serving on CPL’s Board of Directors.
“Seeing the difference in the recipient’s lives is my favorite part of being a volunteer for CPL. Once you see the impact they make, and you hear the stories, it makes you want to keep helping,” said West team member and CPL Board Member, Janet Cooper.
