Canines With a Cause (CWAC) helps shelter dogs find loving homes by training them to work as service animals or well-behaved canine companions for people in need. CWAC’s mission is to give shelter dogs a chance to find loving homes and enrich the lives of the people who care for them. The CWAC program carefully interviews potential recipients for placement in a home

The dogs are carefully evaluated at the shelter for behavior, health and overall temperament. From there, they are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Their initial training takes place at the new CWAC facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. Volunteers, including local veterans, are involved in the training process; they enjoy bonding with the dogs as well as learning how to train dogs.
CWAC works with Pets for Patriots to place at-risk shelter pets with our country’s loyal service men and women. An estimated four million shelter dogs and cats are put to death every year, in spite of numerous studies proving the emotional and physical benefits of companion pets. CWAC offers free of charge dog adoptions to qualifying active military and veterans.
