Our mission is simple – To enrich the lives of veterans, military families, and dogs through the many benefits of the human-animal bond.
To fulfill this mission, VCAS focuses on placing rescue animals with veterans and/or 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. Our organization recognizes the many sacrifices made by American veterans and military families and hope that our efforts can now serve them.
VCAS was started on the premise that companion animals are inherently beneficial to human lives. The co-founder, a veterinarian, witnessed this frequently and began to explore the field of the human-animal bond. Discussing this with family and friends that have served in the military, it became apparent that companion animals play an important role in the quality of life after service.
VCAS is currently placing dogs in Central Ohio.
