This Week's Featured Adoptable: Duke

No dog in the world is sweeter than Sir Duke.  Regal as his noble name, this two-year-old black lab loves to play, whether it's with a rope, a ball or even just a stick he finds in the yard.

Duke came to us from SLCO Animal Services and has really grown as part of the CWAC family.  He's the smartest pup we have, mastering every trick and task effortlessly.  He loves to learn and is always looking for the next opportunity to improve his skills or learn a new trick.  He lives to please and would make a fabulous addition to any family.  Duke is gentle and great with kids.  He's house trained, walks perfectly on a leash and has impeccable manners. 

Is there room in your home and heart for this amazing animal?  If you're interested, contact Cathy at credking@gmail.com or call 801-359-5595.

Fundraiser Time!

Please join us for our fundraiser July 20th at the Sweet Tomatoes in Midvale from 5 to 8 pm.  We'll have sign up sheets for those interested in volunteering or fostering, and you'll have a chance to meet some of our great dogs and see the amazing work they do.  

Just print off the flier (also available on the CWAC Facebook page) and bring it with you when you purchase your dinner.  Part of the night's proceeds for everyone that brings in a flier will be donated directly to the organization.  What's better than having a great meal and helping a great cause?  Hope to see you there!

Weekly Featured Adoptable: Molly

Molly's had a rough start, but she's become a ray of shining hope since coming to CWAC.  Molly is an adorable two-year-old pit mix, and her beautiful face is a direct reflection of her beautiful personality.  Molly is a lover -- all she wants is to cuddle and lay in your lap.  She's also extremely smart, and has risen to one of the top in her training class.  She loves to play ball, and her speed will astound you.

Even though Molly has flourished at the CWAC facility, she's ready to find her forever home and would be a perfect addition to an active family.  She walks great on a leash, is gentle with kids and has basic obedience skills.  If you're interested in meeting Miss Molly, please contact Cathy at credking@gmail.com.

Volunteers Needed!

Do you love dogs?  Have a little extra time on your hands?  Then CWAC needs you!

We need volunteers who can commit to two to three hours each week to walk, play with and generally give a little extra love to our wonderful pups.  We have several time slots available and are able to work around nearly every schedule.  We're also filling spots for every day of the week.  If you're interested in spending some of your spare time giving back to the dogs who are changing lives every day, please let us know.  You can send us your contact information via our Facebook page, just click on the link to the right of the page.

Changing Lives Through Canine Companionship

One in four Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans return home with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. More than four million healthy, adoptable animals will be euthanized in shelters this year. These dogs can provide an understanding, loving companion that can help these veterans cope with debilitating flashbacks by bringing them back to the present, therefore helping them re-assimilate back into civilian life.

Canines With a Cause brings shelter dogs and returned veterans together. Vets benefit from the healing companionship of the dog and shelter dogs' lives are saved by finding loving homes.
