CSU Canine Crew

The CSU Canine Crew is an integral part of campus life at Cleveland State. It provides critical support services and promotes a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for students, faculty, and staff. The program includes two essential components: The Retired K9 Fund and the Therapy Dog program.

By donating to the CSU Canine Crew, you will be making a direct impact in the lives of students, faculty, and staff at Cleveland State. Your contribution will help us continue to provide critical services, support to the campus community, and ensure that our four-legged friends receive the care and attention they need to thrive.

K9 Retirement Fund

Will ensures that our beloved K9 officers receive the care and support they need in their golden years. Dogs like Rex have served the campus and community with distinction, and we owe them a debt of gratitude for their loyalty, courage and dedication.

Rex has accomplished many jobs during his nine-year tenure at CSU including:

  • Performing multiple Presidential, Senatorial, and Dignitary sweeps
  • Assisted in major events such as MLB/NBA Allstar weeks & the Republican National Convention
  • Conducted sweeps for attended properties at CSU
  • Completing 430 missions at the state and local levels

Your donation to the Retired K9 Fund will help us ensure that brave animals, like Rex, receive the medical care, food, shelter, and love they deserve in retirement as well as providing resources for dogs who will retire in the future.

Therapy Dog Program

Provides students with an invaluable source of comfort and support during their academic journeys. CSU’s therapy dogs Rune and Thor are trained to provide emotional support and comfort to individuals experiencing stress, anxiety, and other mental health challenges.

Your donation to the therapy dog program will help us expand our fleet of therapy dogs and ensure that all students have access to this essential resource.

Please join us in supporting this worthy cause by donating today. Every dollar counts and your generosity will make a real difference in the lives of those who call CSU home!
