A Message from the President

It is an honour to serve as the President of the CVSDU.  I am grateful to all our members, volunteers and board members who make this organization what it is.

Our on-going work and growth are important because this isn’t just about us, our healing and work – this is about the future.  Our country needs a charity like ours to meet the coming needs of individuals who will suffer and struggle with PTSD.

There will be a generation who follow us, who will be injured like we were, whether serving their country in a time of war or keeping their communities safe, peaceful, and stable, they will need our charity and know how to be there to help them, through the care and support of a well-trained service dog.
