The idea for "Pets Healing Vets" was organic and obvious: they knew the healing power of companion animals, and knew the desperation of so many veterans. 18 veterans take their own life every day, and thousands of shelter pets are euthanized weekly. Just as Samson and Lucy the founder of the organization's dogs, had been for Justin, we realized matching veterans with rescued dogs or cats would be life-saving...for both.
Initially, many rescues and shelters turned us and our idea away. It was frustrating, and deflating. But we were intent on making \"Pets Healing Vets\" happen. And then we got a call from the Humane Society for Hamilton County. Not only were they willing to help, they were willing to put in as much passion and hard work as were we. We will talk with Megan Morseth who with her husband Justin helped start this wonderful organization.
