So I was watching the Invictus Games tonight on the TV and just wanted to tell you about something which caught my eye.
Dogs can help heal invisible wounds.
Bravehound looks to provide companion dogs to veterans and then support the dog and veteran over the dogs’ life. They try to match suitable veterans with companion dogs and where possible, they willl re-home dogs from an animal welfare charity. Veterans are supported with pet insurance, feeding and equipment.
Dogs are really at providing companionship, and encouraging owners to take exercise and have a routine. They also make it easier for people to talk to each other.
Scottish based Bravehound is the canine wing of Glen Art, and they support former servicemen and women and their families
This is really quite a charity and they have already been voted Best Voluntary/Charity Project in the National Lottery Awards. You can make a donation to help them in their work here.
