Service Dogs at Denver Derby Day

Canine Partners of the Rockies enables Coloradans with disabilities to lead more independent and gratifying lives through training and partnering them with highly skilled service dogs.

Canine Partners will be bringing their future service dogs to the upcoming Denver Derby Day event. These pups are in training to become lifechanging partners for people with mobility disabilities or in local hospitals, clinics and schools. Attendees can look forward to meeting these amazing animals, derby hat photos with the pups, and a live and silent auction to support this great cause.

Big Thank you

We have limited sponsorship opportunities for select organizations, businesses and individuals looking to take part in this one-of-a-kind event.
