Cesar Millan Announces the First-Ever USO Canine Volunteer of the Year

Whether it’s offering a helpful paw or a listening ear, USO Canine Volunteers play an immeasurably important role in carrying out the USO’s mission at various USO Centers around the world.

With the help of these special, four-legged volunteers (all of them certified therapy dogs), the people who serve and their military family members know that they not only have a place, but also a friend - albeit a furry one - to turn to in challenging times.

The USO is honored to recognize just a few of these incredible USO Canine Volunteers by announcing the inaugural 2023 USO Canine Volunteer of the Year Award.
