Vancouver Island Compassion Dogs Society (VICD) is a non-profit organization that matches rescue dogs to veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

VICD finds and adopts suitable rescue dogs from various shelters for our program.

Our professional training program has been designed to help veterans create a lasting, bonded partnership we affectionately call a Team.

“One of the most beneficial effects of a compassion dog is the ability to … distract my mind from venturing deep into the past traumatic memories or experiences. It allows me to see a light when I am covered in darkness.”

– one of our Veterans

Our first team has graduated from our program and will be taking their public access program in the near future.
