Live Puppy Cam from Warrior Canine Connection

Need a break from Virtual Expo education, networking, or browsing exhibitor listings? Check out the live puppy cam in our Play + Demo Zone, brought to you from our partners at Warrior Canine Connection!

All of WCC’s programs and services—to include placement of Service Dogs—are provided at absolutely no cost to wounded Veterans and their Military Families. That work is made possible by thousands of generous supporters from around the country. To be a part of this life-changing work, please make a gift now.

Warrior Canine Connection (WCC) is a non-for-profit organization that utilizes a unique form of Animal Assisted Therapy to empower returning combat Veterans who have sustained physical and psychological wounds while in service to our country. Based on the concept of Warriors helping Warriors, Veterans assist in the training of Service Dogs for fellow disabled Veterans. In doing so, they mitigate their own symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury, and other challenges; receive help in reintegrating back into their families and communities; and find a new mission and sense of purpose.
