Pups With A Purpose: This group is helping veterans through the companionship of furry friends

War takes a physical, emotional, and mental toll on someone that only combat veterans understand. In fact, when many veterans return home, they have trouble adjusting to the life they used to know. That is where Warrior Canine Connection comes in.

They enlist warriors on a mission, one of recovery and therapy. Their trained service pups help veterans reconnect with life, their families, communities, and each other.

Founder and Executive Director, Rick Yount spoke with RFD-TV’s own Suzanne Alexander about why they use dogs, how their Mission Based Trauma Recovery model works, the PAWS Act, and why their live puppy cam is so popular.
