Warrior Buddies Adoption Program
This program is designed to bring unconditional love and companionship in the form adoptable shelter pets to our wounded warriors in Prince William County. After reading about the Pets2Vets organization and mission, we decided that our proximity to Ft. Belvoir Military Hospital would be a perfect fit to establish a similar adoption program for our wounded Veterans outside the Beltway. Through a coalition with the Prince William Vietnam Veterans working with the military bases and medical facilities, we have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of our local military heroes and our wonderful adoptable pets.
Participants in similar programs point out “medications help in recovery from PTSD, but they are not the whole solution; animals can do what drugs cannot by playing an active therapeutic role in a veteran’s recovery, offering the sort of non-judgmental love and unconditional support that the mending combat heroes need.”
This program has proven to be a mutually beneficial one. Our national heroes are provided with a loving companion for healing, but they in turn give our animals what they need most in the world: a home where they will be appreciated for who they are and finally receive the love they so deserve.
