“It’s our responsibility to make sure that these members of people’s families are well taken care of. We call it puppy therapy just because it makes us feel good. I actually had one soldier tell me that pets make him feel at home.”-Jennifer G. Gauntt, Texas A&M University VET
VET means Veterinary Emergency Team and National Guard personnel from dozens of states have been doing their part, and feeling the love in return: “It can be kind of therapeutic to Soldiers and people. It takes the heartbreak down, takes the blood pressure down.”-Debra L. Zoran, Small Animal Science professor at Texas A&M University
