Volunteer pilots flew 29 puppies across the country training to become service dogs

Cuteness overload coming your way.


Canine Companions for Independence is a nonprofit that provides people with disabilities with highly trained assistance dogs.

Just last week, the organization took to Instagram to highlight some of its awesome work: volunteer pilots flew 29 puppies across the country to their volunteer puppy raisers. The furry animals will become assistance dogs for folks with disabilities. 

Take a look: 

Although we certainly didn't need to be reminded of the power of animals in making our lives better, it surely seems like, during this global period of quarantine, companies have tried to spread the love by offering the aid of furry friends in a myriad of activities. Goats and llamas have been making Zoom appearances, adorable furry ones are lifting senior citizens' spirits via virtual playdates, an English bulldog became our lockdown hero and we can even adopt a pet via Zoom these days! 

Of course, Canine Companions for Independence's work has been praiseworthy since way before we've all been trapped at home. But there's something about this act of cute kindness that resonates even more these days.
