Canines With a Cause (CWAC) is a not-for-profit organization devoted to helping military men and women. One way they do this is by providing dogs, rescued from local shelters, to veterans and active military men and women suffering with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. 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. You can donate to help, read about their stories, and get involved.
