Sponsoring Assistance Dogs has been a positive experience for Canon Medical due to the professionalism of Assistance Dogs Australia and knowing we are supporting the valuable work that they do. We have been fortunate, over the past five years, to sponsor three highly intelligent dogs. We have invested financially and emotionally in this partnership, and it has far exceeded our expectations. To see our dogs grow and learn through the different stages, and then finally interact with their client is amazing and heart-warming. As a company, we are proud to be associated with Assistance Dogs Australia.
