Initially I was looking to adopt or foster a dog but the more I learned about Canines with a cause the more I knew that I needed to offer what I could to this organization. It was a fantastic experience volunteering with Canines with a Cause! Saving homeless dogs and helping veterans is such important work, I looked forward to volunteering for the dog training sessions every week. I know that even though there is not monetary compensation the rewards that I received by spending time with these great people has added such great value to my life.

I think Kathy King has a true vision. Not only is she saving dogs lives, she is impacting many lives in many ways. Please step up and Give Back to Canines With A True Cause and effect.

As a veteran I know what it means to have non-profit organizations like this one looking out for me. As a disabled, I absolutely can attest to the saving power of animals in my therapy.

It keeps me from being depressed. it helps me know that there are creatures in the world that offer their love unselfishly.

Canines With a Cause is not only a good cause, IT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL for many veterans who are suicidal, or lost with no hope. Men and women who are finding it hard to re-adjust to civilian life with special needs. CWAC is the best.

Find ways to get more donations from corporations whom need to periodically donate money to good causes (aka chase banks and others). Get the word out on Fox news to get donations from concerned Americans.

I have been involved with this program for almost 2.5 years. I am constantly impressed by the commitment and drive of the wonderful volunteers. On a weekly basis I get to see veterans and their dogs making progress toward harmonious relationships and I am proud to be associated with CWAC.

Canines With a Cause helped us adopt our dog, Darwin, earlier this year, and we greatly appreciated their service and time. They were patient and welcoming as we discussed the possibility of meeting Darwin. And they graciously met us at a convenient location near our home so we could meet him. The representative we met with had so much info about the dog, and obviously cared a great deal about the home he was going to. We had support to make sure it was the right fit, and they even let us do a week long trial foster period. Canines With a Cause very clearly wanted to better our home life and give us the companion we wanted. They included his collar, crate, vaccines, and a microchip for Darwin, which we were very grateful for! I have since recommended people to CWAC and will continue to do so!

Awesome organization that does everything they can for the dogs that need help and also the veterans. I have not had the opportunity to adopt from them or help by fostering but I have watched them help lots of dogs and I hope to work with them once my circumstances allow it

I am a USMC Nam Era Veteran disabled Federal Fire Fighter of over 24 years, and former Correctional Sergeant/Fire Safety Officer. With the passing of our 2 canines Poke 2009 & Acacia Embers 2011, that we had adopted in CA, our family was not complete without the occasion bark, wag and paws on our laps, or going places as a family, camping and walking with our canine children, drawing others attention and praise.

PetFinders led us to Hank aka the Hank'ster, which brought us in touch with Canines With A Cause, adoption went smoothly and there was more laughter in our home once again...Hank a 3-4 month old Border Collie who had his own medical challenges in his young life. CWAC helped us with his treatment and CWAC since became part of our Family as well. I will not throw out any names as Buddy another BC rescued by CWAC came into our home to be Fostered until AD Journey, returned from Dog Trials in So.CA., where our family are from...and upon AD's return, Buddy had bonded so well with Hank, it was decided Buddy belonged here...and over 18 months later they remain close as Brothers.

Now our family including 2 Felines and a Cockatiel are very happy, well our Felines (George & Janome) have another opinion, as in keeping a low profile, being quiet and watching from above....that is from the top of our TV cabinet. Hank n Buddy are very quiet, well behaving, lovable, love to play, ignore the Felines and love being with family...we could not ask for more, other than if we can only do more for CWAC and their Mission, as a family. And we offer to foster other CWAC rescues if needed.

Nothing has to be done, only the need of more support from the community so CWAC can grow and meet the need of Veterans and Special Need humans bonding with canines for a more rewarding and fulfilling life.

Canines with a Cause is an amazing non-profit that goes beyond expectations. Not only do they save canine lives but they save human ones by working with veterans. The work they do is incredible and I've met many of their volunteers, all passionate and knowledgable. When I donate to them I know they are not going to waste a penny and it all goes to continuing their mission.

I was able to adopt s dog through Canines with a Cause. It was the best and easiest adoption process I have ever been through. I have adopted 4 other dogs. 2 have passed away.
I will continue to adopted from them.
