Pets for Vets is a national 501(c)3 organization that specifically selects and matches a shelter dog to the personality of a veteran suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), anxiety or depression. We work with professional animal trainers who rehabilitate the shelter dog and who teach them responsive behavior based on the veterans specific needs.
