Canine Veterans Support Corporation

Mission

Our mission at CVSC is to provide relief and support to military veterans who have experienced a variety of challenges upon returning home from active duty. CVSC is primarily dedicated to assisting veterans to integrate back into civilian life. Integrating canines into veterans’ life will provide comfort, companionship, and well-being. Canines provide daily support when navigating the rough and sometimes volatile and hostile reintegration back into domestic life.

Goals and Objectives

Our goals and objectives will be accomplished by raising awareness and funding in support of providing canines to veterans in need. Funding will be secured using local events, for example our annual veteran’s day and marine birthday celebration event. Our mission will also be carried out by securing funds from both private and public sources. Officers or board members are not compensated in any way. All donated funds will directly support our cause and programs, less any expenses in support of our events and operating expenses. Our goal is to provide 85%-90% of our donations to positively impact our veterans lives.
