Highland Canine Connect is delighted to be holding a fundraiser on May 1, 2021 at Stardust Cellars in Wilkesboro, NC.

Local businesses can also rent a space to sell their products at the event.

What we do:

Highland Canine Connect is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that works with the community to create fulfilling and engaging connections between dogs and people in need. We offer a number of canine related programs throughout the community and hope that with your support, we will be able to expand these programs and offer new ones in the near future!

Creating Beneficial Community CONNECTions!

Our school reading program combines dogs and reading for children who may have difficulty reading.  We have seen tremendous success with this program and we hope to expand to more schools soon!

We will be donating fully trained service dogs to individuals who need a canine companion to help with activities in their daily lives. The benefits of a well-trained service dog are endless and our goal is to help place them with those in need.

Support for our nation’s law enforcement and military has always been at the forefront of our efforts.  We continue to support them with our working dog donations for those departments with limited budgets.
