The National nonprofit Canine Companions for Independence is looking to brighten the day with a livestream of its puppy-cam, in honor of National Puppy Day.

The puppy-cam showcases a litter of five-week-old future assistance dogs as they play, eat, sleep and grow!

Canine Companions assistance dogs are trained in over 40 commands and are matched with children, adults and veterans with disabilities free of charge. These dogs assist with daily tasks such as retrieving dropped items, opening and closing doors and drawers, turning on and off lights and much more to enhance independence for people with disabilities. To get there, it takes nearly two years of hard work and love, starting at the very beginning as adorable puppies.

Even in uncertain times, Canine Companions’ mission is still in motion. There are over 400 people with disabilities waiting to be matched with a Canine Companions assistance dog. To learn more, you can visit their website here.
