Connecting Veterans and Dogs

A program in northwest Arkansas connects veterans and dogs …

The Battle Buddies: Paws for Vets program will address the need and interest of northeast Arkansas veterans to improve their daily living activities through an emotional support dog, said Lynda Nash, director of the Beck PRIDE Center.

 

“I’ve had a lot of veterans who have expressed interest about getting a dog,” Nash added. “Some have tried to get a service dog, but the wait list is so long or they would have to drive so far.” Others are also unable to do it out-of-pocket and/or need more training, according to The Jonesboro Sun.
