Department of Minnesota AMVETS Supports PetsLoyal2Vets
PetsLoyal2Vets is incredibly thankful to MN AMVETS a Veteran Service Organization for supporting our new training facility with a $500 donation. Meeting the needs of Minnesota veterans can be found in a variety of charitable and noble causes. But meeting the specific needs of veterans who have sustained injuries related to Traumatic Brain Injuries, Post Traumatic Stress and Physical Assault Traumas by adopting highly trained Psychiatric service dogs, therapy and companion dogs exclusively to disabled Minnesota veterans is a service Universities and Veteran Service Organizations VSO’s are taking seriously. One service dog training facility in Florida has a 4 year waiting list.
