Join the fun August 12th! SMPS Columbus has formed a team to participate in Canine Companion’s 2017 DogFest Walk ‘n Roll. We’re walking in DogFest on August 12, 2017 because we love dogs, and we believe in Canine Companions for Independence and their mission to provide highly-trained assistance dogs to adults, children and veterans with disabilities FREE of charge.

If you are up for the challenge, join the SMPS Columbus team by clicking hereThe more the merrier! We will walk with other dogs and their owners for a day of fun, festivities, graduate speakers, dog demonstrations, and more.

Celebrate the community of people and dogs that make it possible for Canine Companions to show that the most advanced technology capable of transforming the lives of people with disabilities has a cold nose and a warm heart.

The Columbus group of Canine Companions for Independence® is proud to announce DogFest Walk 'n Roll Columbus at Market Square in New Albany!
