Being someone also with PTSD and a degree in psychology with a dog and going to therapy and on medication myself sometimes you need all the above to be able to cope with the trauma that has occurred in your life.There is nothing to be ashamed of and if it is helping you that s the point.
I realize now, after our scruffy, Terrier mix and 12 years with him relating to our family, what terrific affection and loyalty flowed from this rascal of a dog. I'm a peace time vet, never fired a hostile shot. Just guarded the mud and hard working people of South Korea. There are many books on how to train and enjoy dogs. for they are very smart....the terriers are very alert and they tune in to the humans they live with.---Vern Chindlund, Glen Ellyn, IL.
It has been proven that service and therapy animals make things better for the people who need them and it can mean the difference between life and death.
We have worked with damaged people from all walks of life and our dogs have been a healing factor for many. They have a healing power called love.
Horses and other equines can provide much needed "medicine" for human beings. It just makes sense. To kill our resources is the dumbest idea around.
Someone is reading my mind. I have been trying to figure out how to get this done for a long time. The powers that be would be crazy to not pass this. Love of an animal is so much more powerful than mind numbing drugs. Thank you, Tori.
nice 1 keep up the good work.

What an amazing opportunity to pair PTSD sufferers with animals. Now if it could be expanded to include shelter animals we could circumvent yet another important cause. Blessings to all soldiers with this affliction. Thank you for your service...it is so very appreciated!
