CITADEL CANINE SOCIETY of Vancouver, BC is pleased to announce that they have been invited by STARBUCKS Coffee at Britannia Plaza, Elbow Drive & 49th, Calgary, Alberta to participate at the annual Britannia Plaza Pancake Breakfast on the closing weekend of the Calgary Stampede.    The breakfast will run from 9:30 until 11:00 am on Friday, July 13th.

This will be both an initial fund raising event for Citadel Canine, and an opportunity for this newly formed non-profit Society to interact with the public and explain its core mission, which is to deliver service dogs across Canada to new military veterans, to retired peace officers and to children requiring this unique, but increasingly popular form of therapeutic support.

Citadel Canine is very grateful to STARBUCKS for extending this invitation, and looks forward to meeting with Calgarians on the 13th at Britannia Plaza..
