The Power of 10 is Greater Would you be one of 10? Canines for Service launched a “Power of 10” fundraising campaign on September 1, 2016. The goal of the 100-day initiative is to raise $60,000 – the cost to train and partner two service dogs. Service dogs change a persons’ life with the gift of independence. The Power of 10 starts with 10 supporters donating 10 dollars each to Canines for Service. They, in turn, ask ten of their friends to do the same, who then ask ten more friends, creating a powerful wave of support and fundraising dollars. Canines for Service operates from a 5,000 sq. ft. of space on Old Dairy Road. The long awaited expansion has provided the opportunity to initiate a Veterans internship program teaching Veterans new job skills learning how to train service dogs for Veterans with disabilities. In the upcoming months, the program will expand again to offer a fee based learning opportunity for service dog training. “Since bringing the Canines for Veterans program back to Wilmington in June 2015, we had been stretched to maximum capacity with little room for service dog training or to increase the number of dogs in training, offer more pet therapy classes and the aspects of daily business”, says Rick Hairston, President and CEO. “Now, the service dog training has the much needed space to achieve our mission, we can bring more dogs in to train and have already grown with the intern program.” For more information, please call 910-362-8181, send an email to, or visit
