Canines With a Cause
October 31, 2013

I have volunteered with CWAC, then hired a year ago. I have been working with shelter dogs and veterans closely. It is awesome to see how dogs can change a veterans life. I constantly point our to our participants any change I see in their own personality. I see a lot of smiles when thing go well. This is a great organization that I am happy to work for.

Canines With a Cause
November 24, 2012

I used to train Seeing Eye dogs for the blind in NJ. I did this for 15 years. I loved the whole process of matching the right dog to the right person. Then, watching them blossom into a team was amazing to watch. The hard work I put into training a dog for a blind person and then watching what I did for someone was VERY rewarding. Because of my husband's job, I moved here to Utah and got involved with CWAC because of a good friend of mine. This program helps to match veterans with PTSD with the perfect dog that they themselves, through the expertise of a head trainer, will take classes to learn how to train there own service dog. Being involved with this whole process brings me back to my days working for The Seeing Eye. I feel the same reward for taking a shelter dog and matching them to a veteran who can change their life forever.
