Here is a "teaser" photo from the little photo shoot Fiona, Bella, Wally and Oliver had. The girls were totally working the camera while the boys were... well, the boys were boys! Keep checking back for more photos! (Don't worry, we'll also make sure to post to the websites!)

Oliver is in DESPERATE need of a donated/discounted groom. He is a diamond in the rough right now. Poor guy has really matted ears. Please talk to your groomer or groomer friends to see if they'd be willing to donate their time to make Oli picture perfect!
Not only for Oliver but we would love a go-to groomer because with the long haired dogs, usually they need a good groom before meeting their forever families!

upcoming things with CWAC

  • Tomorrow (3/27) we will be having a guest photographer, Cecily Hallman with Be Wise Art coming to photograph our adoptable dogs.
  • We are really trying to rally the foster troops. Come the end of this  month we will be relying solely on our fosters for us to pull animals. We will not be renewing our lease with the current facility and keeping dogs in kennels goes against what we want for our animals. Please see our website for FAQ on fostering. Keep your eye on the blog as well for tips on working with your foster.
  • With us losing our current facility we need all eyes on the look-out for a new home for us. What we're ideally looking for is somewhere that has an apartment or living quarters for a caretaker. Maybe a barn or outbuilding that we can make into a training room and build off kennels. 
  • By the end of the week we will have at least one post from our trainers Astrid Smith with A Dogs Journey or Shaun Woodard with Not For Dogs Only.
  • Last but not least LIKE US ON FACEBOOK!! we always tons going on on good 'ol Facebook!

Canines With a Cause's WISHLIST!!

If you are able to help with any of these supplies please get in touch with us at We also accept cash donations that would go towards vaccinations and neuter or spay of new dogs. Every time we take in a shelter dog it costs us approximately $75 per dog to get them ready for their new home. We are also going to start the option of "sponsoring"a dog. You make donations to go towards a certain dog; say Fiona, who needs chicken, corn, wheat and soy free dog food and treats. 

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.
