Raise awareness for animal therapy at the Vets and Pets event

Corpus Christi Harley-Davidson ‎Vets & Pets from Facebook

The tradition of pets helping veterans deal with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) goes all the way back to WWII when a stray dog was adopted by military personnel and assisted doctors and nurses in a hospital.

Since then, animal therapy has had tremendous results for veterans with PTSD.

According to a study done by the Human-Animal Bond Research Institute, people with PTSD that were exposed to animal therapy saw a reduction in depression, PTSD symptom severity, and anxiety.

This event aims to help local veterans hook up with local organizations to receive emotional support from animal therapy.

The event goes from 11 am to 4 pm at the Corpus Christi Harley Davidson
