At Cornerstone Companions Service Dogs we provide specially trained assistance Dogs to those in need, to give someone with all abilities requiring assistance the quality of life and independence they desire.
Many times people with abilities requiring assistance face complications and challenges on an everyday basis that make purchasing a specially-trained assistance dog unattainable for them.
I understand this difficulty personally as I myself survive with a medical condition.
We alleviate this hardship by providing the dog free of charge through grants fundraising and donation efforts.

Cornerstone Companions® Service Dogs
is a 501c(3) volunteer based organization that raises and places fully trained service dogs for a variety of disability needs including autism assistance, medical alert, medical response, hearing assistance, psychiatric, and mobility assistance service dogs. We also train and place facility dogs which are specially trained to assist in various courtrooms and other government or local agencies. In some cases we can even train your existing dog to become an assistance dog.
Our mission is to empower individuals to achieve the higher quality of life, independence, and freedom that they desire through the use of a skillfully trained Cornerstone Companions service dog at an affordable price. We want to restore hope and change lives!
Cornerstone Companions all started with founder Britany Morano's love of dogs and people. She has an insatiable desire to provide assistance dogs to those in need regardless of their ability to pay. Today we rely on volunteers and donations to provide the most wonderful service dogs to people in need.
Our service dogs are raised in our homes, receive daily positive reinforcement training, and become members of our family until they are ready to serve someone with a disability. We love watching our service dogs make a constant impact in the life of the person they are matched with.
This is Roux, an autism Assistance Dog that we trained for a bright and beautiful 2 year old named Ever. Before Roux was trained as an autism assistance dog, Ever's mother was reluctant to even leave the house for shopping trips to the local grocery store for fear that her daughter would have behavioral disorders or wander and become lost in public. Now that Roux is trained in search and tethering tasks, Lauren feels confident and Ever feels comfortable knowing Roux is there.
Your generous support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and rescue more dogs so we can place more dogs in the hands of those that need them. Please consider making a tax deductible donation today, thank you for blessing us so that we can continue to bless others!
