Veterans Day Nov. 11, 2017 Fundraising Festival
at Virginia Beach SPCA
VETERANS DAY, the Adam Thoroughgood
Chapter, National Society, Daughters of the American
Revolution (NSDAR) and Virginia Beach SPCA will
co-host VETS.RESCUED PETS, a fundraising festival
to thank and support our Hampton Roads military
Veterans through adoption of companion pets.
Date: Veterans Day, November 11, 2017
Time: 10 AM 4 PM Location: Virginia Beach
According to the National Center for PTSD, "recovering
from PTSD is a process. Evidence-based treatments
for PTSD help people do things they have been avoiding
because of their PTSD . . . and provide the best
chance of recovery from PTSD."
Owning a companion pet may "lift your mood
or help you feel less stressed" if you have
PTSD or just want a good companion. Companion pets
are fun and give you "a good reason to get
out of the house, spend time outdoors, and meet
new people." (http://www.ptsd.va.gov/public/treatment/cope/dogs_and_ptsd.asp).
Companion pets need owners who can provide daily
attention, a safe and caring home, and training.
VBSPCA is a private, nonprot animal shelter, an
adoption- focused organization that finds homes
for over 3,500 homeless pets each year.
