Do you have a military veteran in your life that's been diagnosed with a mental health issue?
They might get some unexpected relief and help from an animal and a state organization is stepping in to help. PetsforPatriots.org works with nine shelters in Virginia to hook the vets up with animals that need a home. Doctors say it can help reduce the vets stress and even get them off medication altogether.
