In central Ohio, an organization called Pets for Heroes, has made it their mission to train rescue dogs to become companion dogs for veterans who suffer from mental health issues such as anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
“It’s giving the dogs that second chance they deserve and making a difference in a veteran or a first responder’s life.” explained Heather Brown, a dog trainer with Pets for Heroes. Volunteers foster the rescue pups for three months as they train to become companion dogs for these amazing veterans.
