Elmer is an Army veteran who needed a companion to make life a little less stressful.
He is certainly not alone: lots of veterans, especially, benefit from the love and loyalty of a pet or service animal when transitioning back into civilian life. It’s something they most certainly deserve after serving our country.
Pets and Vets is an organization through Greater Good that pairs companion animals with veterans free of charge. Some of these pets were even rescued from shelters and finally got their forever homes! Talk about a win-win.
Elmer and Lady are just one of the many happy matches made possible by Pets and Vets.
“I don’t know how to thank you for choosing Lady for us. She is such a treat to have. She takes me for walks about three times a day which I enjoy and is good for me. She starts her mornings out by crawling in bed with us for her morning loving then she is on to playing with her balls. She throws them and chases them until she is tired and needs a nap! And thanks to Pets for Vets to make this all possible.”
– Elmer and Bonnie and Lady
