Pets for Vets is an organization that provides relief and a second chance for returning veterans and shelter dogs in need. Recently, Pets for Vets helped Jake find his new best friend, Tank. Jake served overseas and like many vets, was having problems adjusting to civilian life. Tank acts as a security blanket for his human, making him feel safe and comfortable when the couple is around. “He wakes me every morning and puts me in such a great mood because he never makes me really get up, he is just checking if he can lay next to me for a few more minutes of sleep.”
