High Coo – Oct 21 – National Pets for Veterans Day


Today’s holiday emphasizes the mental health benefits pets can provide to all, especially veterans.

As noted on the Pets for Vets website (https://www.petsforvets.com/)

“He’s more than just a friend. He’s my battle buddy. He’s my left hand. We’re connected by a leash, but it’s really our umbilical cord. He’s sometimes more tuned into me than I’m tuned into me. He knows more about me than I do sometimes. He lets me know what’s going on.” 
– Adam

Animals improve their (human companions’) lives in countless, remarkable ways.

  • Ease Loneliness
