Canine Companions for Independence® Facility Dog

Lammon joined the EDCare team as a working facility dog on July 15, 2019. Michelle Evans, the Adolescent Program Coordinator for EDCare in Colorado Springs, was carefully matched with Lammon by Canine Companions for Independence®. Michelle trained with a professional Canine Companions instructor on how to utilize his amazing abilities. Training is ongoing to ensure Lammon continues to excel as in his role as a facility dog at EDCare.

Lammon is a Golden Retriever/Yellow Lab mix. He knows over 40 commands that allow him to interact with staff and patients in calm and appropriate ways. Lammon continues to learn more every day as he works with Michelle and those working toward achieving eating disorder recovery.

Canine Companions depends on the support of tens of thousands of donors and volunteers to match assistance dogs, like Lammon, free of charge. Learn more about Canine Companions at
