Pets for Vets

I came across this article on CNN regarding war veterans who suffer from PTSD and war injuries.  A Non profit organization, Pets for Vets, places homeless animals with veterans who are in need of extra love and attention.

Like the article states, dogs have had a relationship with people for over 10,000 years.  And studies show having a companion animal like a dog has many residual health benefits for people who suffer from depression, a mental illness and with the elderly.

I know for myself, when I come home it’s nice to receive a greeting from my four legged friends, that the house doesn’t seem so empty, and pets give you an unconditional love that one simply cannot measure.
