Program uses rescue dogs to help veterans heal
Question of the Day
“Bringing those two together is Kismet. It’s the way that it should be,” Morseth said. “They both understand anxiety. They understand pain.”
Becki Harris, who manages the Humane Society’s behavior and rescue programs, said it has been “really neat to get to see the transformations.” She said the people at the shelter who are involved in the program are passionate about it because it gives them the chance to give back to people who “do so much for us.”
“We really feel that these veterans are part of our family,” she said. “We become invested.”
Harris said the Humane Society wants to continue to grow the program and is considering expanding the program to include law enforcement officers suffering from PTSD.
But the main focus, she said, is finding more veterans.
Sexton encourages veterans to get help, whether that means applying to get a rescue animal through Pets Healing Vets, going to the Veterans Affairs Hospital, or finding another avenue.
“Don’t bottle it up and don’t take it to your grave, so to speak,” he said. “There are things out there to help you out. Just get the help you need.”
