New Bill Supports Use of Shelter Dogs to Help Veterans with PTSD

Friday, October 14, 2011 - 2:30pm

We applaud the United States House of Representatives for the passage of the Veterans Dog Training Therapy Act. This innovative bill, introduced by U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm (D-NY), would establish a program where service members suffering from PTSD could train shelter dogs to be service dogs for disabled veterans.

“When more and more servicemen and women are returning from overseas with PTSD and other injuries, this bill will allow for our veterans to get the therapy and assistance they need and will give some worthy shelter dogs very good homes,” says Nancy Perry, Senior Vice President of ASPCA Government Relations.

The Veterans Dog Training Therapy Act was one of six bills that address veterans’ health issues to pass unanimously in the House this week. The ASPCA thanks Rep. Grimm, himself a veteran, for his leadership on this important legislation to support our nation’s veterans and shelter dogs.
