War Vets Heal With the Help of Shelter Dogs

Thank You For Making Veterans Day Special

On average, twenty-two veterans commit suicide daily in our country. Sadly, forty-nine active military women are raped every day. What can be done to prevent this travesty?

The Veterans Administration is over-whelmed and under staffed, as much as they are trying to keep up, new cases of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury grow daily.

What can you do to help? Spread the word, help advocacy groups like Canines With a Cause spread the word. Donate to help keep our services available for people in need who served to protect our country. The private sector needs to help an almost broken system.

Thank you for your support, the shelter dogs we train and place make a big difference in the lives of the veterans who adopt them. The dogs give unconditional, non-judgmental love and companionship, sometimes that can make the difference between life and death.

Please don't forget our veterans this Monday.
