Like trusted battle buddies, animals can be invaluable partners for Veterans readjusting to civilian life, providing powerful therapeutic and practical benefits.

Pets and Vets was launched in 2011 as a service providing pets and emotional support animals to U.S. military Veterans. ARF's flagship program now provides a variety of services, including transforming rescue dogs into emotional support animals as well as trained service animals for Veterans with PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, anxiety, severe depression, and more.
