Hear It From Our Veterans

“I hope that Canines With a Cause can continue to help everybody; dogs, those that are training them and the veterans. They’re basically saving three lives in one go.”

-Lisa, veteran

PTSD is like a venom in your veins that you can’t get out. The Canines With a Cause program has been helping me cope and not have the feelings of hopelessness anymore. When I first got discharged, I didn’t think I could go on in live being a normal person. Now that I am training my dog to be able to come with me everywhere I go, my anger and PTSD symptoms are starting to be more controllable.
