Bari Schlesinger was once unable to pick up items that she
dropped on the floor. She once relied on others to open doors.
She once feared going places alone.
Thanks to the help of Canine Companions for Independence, Bari no
longer strains herself to retrieve dropped items, she doesn’t
need to wait for strangers to come along and open doors, and gone
are the days of anxiety and doubt. Bari is now a self-assured and
independent individual with her wonderful Canine Companions
assistance dog, Axel III, provided to her free of charge.
