We truly underestimate how much companion animals do for us and only emphasize what we do for them (rescue, etc.) and not that rescue, etc. isn't noble but when you consider what they can do for people... suddenly rescue just seems intelligent and sensible! Lots of info on assistance dogs (and even a disabled trainer who trains assistance dogs for others that are disabled) on digitaldog.com

What a wonderful thing. I know first hand that having a pet helps with depression. I have 5 cats, and my first one I adopted shortly after I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety disorder. Having a pet in your life gives you someone else to think about. You have to make sure you are healthy because you know you need to take care of your little ones.

I think this program is a great way to perhaps help homeless animals as well. It's a win win situation.

There's no better friend than a pet & our troops deserve friends! I feel (I know I'm not alone in this), that vets get crap compared to the politicians who send them into danger & vote themselves raises....but does nothing beneficial for the vets!

This is great. The sevice dogs and the people with them get incredible bonds out of it.
