Since 2012, Wounded Warriors Canada (WWC) has made significant investments, as a leading funder of PTSD Service Dogs. The preliminary results of the Veterans Affairs Canada (VAC) funded efficacy study has reinforced and provided early clinical evidence which we know to be imperially true: Properly trained PTSD Service Dogs can and do change and save lives. #inthistogether

We have witnessed firsthand this profound connection between humans and animals – this was the inspiration behind The RAWZ Fund. We wanted to assist individuals and families who are affected by injury and/or disability. We do this through The RAWZ Fund by donating 100% of RAWZ Natural Pet Food’s profits to organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives of those living with disability – through the countless benefits of life with a service dog.
