LICKING FOR LOVE A puppy in training with Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) greets a soldier in Washington, D.C. CCI provides service dogs for those with disabilities including veterans. The Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence (LPCCI) has raised $3 million to support CCI since 1982. LPCCI has been successful in raising its visibility: its president, Peter Pergolis of the Tuckahoe Eastchester Lions Club in New York, marched with dogs and puppies and the President (Obama) in the Inaugural Parade in 2013. This current president is Robin Gurrola of the Lodi Mexican Lions Club in California.
