Mission Statement

Canines With a Cause (CWAC) is a non-profit organization devoted to the development of lasting human-canine relationships. Canines with a Cause provides dogs, who are rescued from local shelters, to veterans and active military men and women suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).

The dogs receive initial training through our “Pawsitive Healing for Veterans” program; they’re trained at the Utah State Prison with assigned offenders. The primary goal of this program is to prepare the dog for adoption with local military veterans in need. But in addition, significant research demonstrates the beneficial effects of animals on incarcerated men and women.

One in four veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan suffer from PTSD, depression or anxiety. Veterans return home with feelings of abandonment and often have a difficult time adjusting to civilian life. The adjustment can include depression, substance abuse and in the worst cases, violence and suicide. Working and training assistance dogs has proven to be very beneficial to veterans. The bond created by the training process can lessen stress and help veterans deal with the invisible scars of war. Dogs provide love, comfort, joy and help transform lives. CWAC offers free placement, continual training and support for approved veterans.

Some of our current programs include:

Pawsitive Partnerships-Placing dogs rescued from local shelters with qualified veterans suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Training for the canine/veteran team is provided, as well as long term support.

  3. Adoptions- Our “Diamonds in the Ruff” program provides adoption placement for those dogs who prefer not to train. They would rather just be a loved pet and companion.
  4. CWAC Comfort Crew-Veteran/dog teams provide comfort in hospitals and assisted-living homes for other veterans in need. The teams also visit the homes of fallen fellow warriors.
