How a shelter dog is helping a military vet adjust to life back home.
This is Tiger. And every day is his lucky day.
The happy, social pup was adopted from a shelter in Georgia. Plucked from the bunch for his high energy and social skills, Tiger was granted a new “leash” on life as a service dog because Angela knew he’d be perfect.
This is Tiger’s human, Angela Simpson. Since meeting Tiger, every day’s been her lucky day too.
Simpson and Tiger were brought together through One Warrior Won, a nonprofit that provides service members with support for PTSD.
Approximately 18 to 22 military veterans commit suicide each day, though the number can be higher or lower for specific population of veterans. But no matter how you look at it, it’s the very definition of a crisis.
