Detector Canine Development Program (DCDP)
Our vision is a Detector Canine Development Program that allows homeless Veterans to continue to serve their country by training dogs that will go on to work in a variety of Federal and private organizations in ordinance detection, foreign and domestic, therefore contributing in a positive way to protect U.S. citizens from terrorism.MISSION STATEMENT
The mission of the CVVAMC Detector Canine Development Program is to make a positive difference in the lives of homeless Veterans, primarily through a professionally-supported, one-to-one relationship with a dog, and to assist them in achieving their highest potential as they grow to become confident, competent, responsible, and caring citizens, by providing committed leadership, standards of excellence, and an honorable goal of continuing to provide service to their country. The Detector Canine Program promotes community interaction, service to others, and relationship development.
We always want our Veterans and community to know that CVVAMC is providing innovative programs to reach out and support Veterans in need. We firmly believe in the inherent therapeutic value that working with animals brings and see this as an important benefit to our Veterans, community, and country.
