War vets, shelter dogs heal together in program
Soldiers with PTSD find comfort, inspiration in needy pooches

One of the goals of Pets2Vets is to raise awareness about post-traumatic stress disorder. Sharpe says that while a few groups provide veterans with service dogs, many PTSD and traumatic brain injury patients do not qualify for these programs. Even when they do, because of the stigma still attached to psychological problems, they may hesitate to apply.

Sounds like a wonderful idea...animals can provide a means of getting out of depression and this could help alleviate overfilled shelter issues.  My only concern is, what if a solider lashes out?  How great is the risk of harm to the animal?

I suspect that like any program of this nature, there's a screening process. That said, I'm not sure there's a way to remove any and all risk...no more so than there would be in someone not suffering the effects that these guys are.

That's true.  I think it's a wonderful program.  Thanks for sharing. Smiley
