Rescue dogs are literally saving the lives of veterans struggling with PTSD. According to a study by the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 22 veterans commit suicide every day. Understanding what soldiers can suffer when they come home, whether it’s post-traumatic stress disorder, injury, or other trauma, the nonprofit organization K9s for Warriors pairs veterans with dogs rescued from kill shelters. The dogs have been rigorously trained to give the vets emotional, mental, and physical support, helping them regain their confidence and independence. Both soldier and dog get a second chance at life.
