So my thanks to Barb for this first guest blog intended to familiarize my viewers with the programs and efforts of 'Vets Adopt Pets.'
You can also keep up with their efforts on twitter by following @PetsAdoptVets.
Our major focus is to reach Veterans, Military Families, friends, neighbors, & communities. If a Vet is connected to the VA, they are being well taken care of, but statistically only approx. 1/4 of all Veterans utilize the VA, mostly due to geographic distance. We hope to reach those that may be isolated and in need of some support.....or a pet.....or a service dog. (suicide and PTSD are major issues).
Social Media's are supporting Vets Adopt Pets with much praise. We are part of the vast and wonderful healing community that support our Veterans.
