Pets for Vets

PETS For VETS is Helping

Our goal is to help heal the emotional wounds of military veterans by pairing them with a shelter dog that is specially selected to match his or her personality. Professional animal trainers rehabilitate the dogs and teach them good manners to fit into the veteran’s lifestyle.

Training may also include desensitization to wheel chairs or crutches as well as recognizing panic or anxiety disorder behaviors. Visit Pets for Vets!
