ABOUT THE HUMANE SOCIETY FOR HAMILTON COUNTY AND PETS HEALING VETS:
The Humane Society for Hamilton County is the state’s only open-admission no-kill shelter. The shelter does not discriminate based on breed, health, age or behavior. Every dog and cat that comes through its doors gets an equal chance at a second chance. In 2012, the HSHC took in 3,220 stray and unwanted animals. They placed 90.3% of them in homes, far exceeding the national average of 35%.
Pets Healing Vets was founded in May of 2012 under the 50l(c)3 status of the HSHC. Its mission is to place rescued companion animals with Indiana veterans suffering from PTSD, TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and/or other combat related mental illnesses.
Numerous studies have shown that companion animals significantly reduce stress, anxiety and depression.
- 22 veterans commit suicide every 24 hours
- 1 in every 3 homeless males is a veteran
- 1 in every 4 homeless females is a veteran
- 1 out of every 4 veterans has been diagnosed with PTSD
- 350,000 veterans have documented cases of TBI, it is estimated an additional 350,000 are suffering with the disease unaware.
- Approximately 8-12 million companion animals enter shelters every year. Approximately 6-9 million are euthanized.
Veterans survive on absolute persistence.
Shelter animals survive on sheer will.
Survival Cycle participants will survive on tenacity!
