The Pets for Vets program visited the 44News This Morning studio for “We Salute You”.
The program is dedicated to supporting veterans and providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing them, training them and then pairing the pets with veterans who would benefit from a companion animal.
According to the organization’s website, medical studies have shown that companion animals significantly improve mental and physical health, including reducing stress, depression and anxiety, symptoms experienced by many serving in the military.
