As pet parents, it’s tough to imagine what we’d do without our furry friends. And there are those of us for whom pets are, quite literally, a lifeline. For those folks, life saved by pets would be unimaginable without them.

Many veterans come home psychologically battered. For some of these men and women, when interaction with people fails, bonding with an animal makes all the difference. So, what happens when a veteran can’t find affordable housing that allows his or her pet, too?

Many vets opt for life on the streets with their pets versus homes without them. Now some organizations are teaming up to find affordable pet-friendly housing that will solve this heart-breaking dilemma.

If this strikes a chord, find out what’s going on in your neighborhood. You just might be able to rock the world for some deserving heroes.
