Homeless Dogs and Vets are Paired and Both Benefit

Pets2Vets pairs homeless pets with combat veterans, law enforcement/emergency personnel, and those affected by post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Pets2Vets was started by Air Force senior airman Dave Sharpe, who after returning home from Iraq struggled with his own experience. Sharpe went to a pit-bull rescue facility and adopted a puppy. Through his own success he started the group. The objective is to assist our nation's heroes and their families with rehabilitation through pet therapy, save sheltered pets from being euthanized by providing them with homes, and to raise public awareness of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
