As a military couple, we are well aware of the lack of support some veterans have after leaving the service. This is a great way to help correct that!

Maria Sember, DOFounding Member

I’m honored to support such an amazing cause. Veterans give so much for people they’ve never even met. This is the least we can do for them!!

Kelli CannonFounding Member

In this time of uncertainty, the VCAS mission is a beacon of hope to so many in need and a reminder of the good that exists in the world!

Chris MaciscoFounding Member

Two great causes combined in one endeavor. Helping dogs that need homes while also helping veterans who have served our country!

Mark and Michele McCloskeyFounding Members

Veterans give their all for everyone of us. Dogs give their all because its their nature. What a wonderful way to support and advocate for both.

Veteran Companion Animal Services

Founded in 2013, Veteran Companion Animal Services (VCAS) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose purpose is to serve veterans and/or military families through the benefits of the human-animal bond. To fulfill this purpose, VCAS focuses on placing rescue animals with veterans and military families where companion animal ownership will be beneficial. VCAS provides financial support that assists with general care costs, training, and veterinary expenses so that companion animal ownership is an option and not a burden. 

Rescue Dog Placements

Many service men and women return home finding that their structure and purpose have been lost. VCAS gets to know the veteran and matches them with a rescue dog that will fit their lifestyle and needs – creating a mutually beneficial relationship.

Dog Training Programs

The Frontline Dog Training Program is a 7-week long training class taught by a professional dog trainer. These trainings are open and at no cost to all veterans and military families that currently own a dog.

Veteran Community Outings

After a veteran receives a dog or attends a training class they are still a part of the VCAS family. The community events we host give veterans a chance to build lasting friendships and create an atmosphere to connect with other veterans and have fun.

Veteran Resources

We realize that veterans are a population that need our support and we take pride in being able to connect veterans with numerous resources to support them.
