Congress Passes Service Dog Therapy Bill

Sharing is Caring

The Senate passed H.R. 1448, Puppies Assisting Wounded Service members for Veterans Therapy Act or the PAWS for Veterans Therapy Act.

This is major news as therapy dogs have truly helped many Veterans rated with PTSD and mental illnesses.
