Military, Mutts, and Music (our 3-M Program). Pet Place International's rescue dogs go into therapy dog training in preparation to help veterans and others suffering from PTSD. The program will help veterans by pairing them with trained rescued dogs with the goal of fostering trust and empathy while reducing anxiety, helping both to heal and thrive. Our first therapy dogs in training are shown above.
About Therapy Animals
It’s a proven fact that animals have a profound affect on the human psyche. For a person with a disability or handicap, simply holding or petting an animal not only puts a smile on their face, but it raises their endorphins and enhances their ability to heal and thrive. Pictured below is a Pet Place International Rescue Dog putting a smile on the face of a beautiful young girl, and also a sweet senior woman. Our rescue dogs also enjoy the interaction - and so do we!
