A big thank you as well to Gibbs Media for the images from the event.
On Friday, April 14th, the CVSDU received some amazing news. The Royal Canadian Navy Benevolent Fund (RCNBF) informed us that they would be giving us a $25k grant to support the acquisition of puppies so we can provide service dogs to injured Naval Veterans.
The RCNBF promotes the wellbeing of the naval community to enrich the lives of sailors, veterans, and their families. The RCNBF Community Support Program assists eligible organizations that support clients having a direct link to the Royal Canadian Navy (RCN), and is entirely dedicated to services, programs and projects that support the naval community.

This $25K grant will help the CVSDU’s Puppy Program to purchase and train 2 dogs, with the goal to eventually providing two injured Naval Veterans with service dogs.
It’s with continued support from invested community partners such as the RCNBF that the CVSDU can do what we do; provide trained service dogs and ongoing support to injured veterans and first responders.
THANK YOU to the Royal Canadian Navy Benevolent Fund!
