Pets2Vets founder David Sharpe "Most of the vets I’ve spoken to don’t want dogs to do tricks, we just want companionship,” he says. “Eighteen vets commit suicide every day in this country and one animal is put to sleep every eight seconds. They can help save each other"

Vision
P2V seeks healing and support for the 10-12 million men and women who suffer with some form of psychological condition and homes for the four-five million sheltered animals who are euthanized every year so that both may live in dignity as they embark on their journey together. P2V will provide our nation’s heroes with accessible, cost-effective animal assisted activities (animal companionship) as they pursue rehabilitative and therapeutic care from their healthcare providers

This is such a great idea! I read about this a month or so ago and ever since have been looking into trying to get a non profit like that started out here in CO! With so many shelters..and so many veterans, Police, Fire, EMS personnel here I can see a great need/benefit for something like this in the CO area! So if anyone in the group is familiar with non profits and wants to embark on this journey with me..please let me know!!

Maybe they (P2V) would help you start a Colorado chapter of Pets2Vets? Plus they might be able to help in the start-up process. Cant hurt to ask. ; )
