Dogs of War Dog Rescues Helping Combat Veterans with PTSD on A&E
There is a lot of charities out there that do what Combat veteran Jim Stanek has done and create a non-profit charity to rescue dogs and train them to be service dogs for our combat veterans struggling with PTSD. It is awesome to see that the light is being shined on such a worthy cause.
Combat veteran Jim Stanek returned from war with more than PTSD. He also had a drive to help others like himself, a story told in A&E’s new reality series DOGS OF WAR, premiering Nov. 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
When Stanek looked into getting a service dog to help him heal from his PTSD, he discovered how expensive they are, and how long the wait to be paired with one is. So he started his own nonprofit to rescue dogs from shelters, train them as service dogs and partner them with struggling veterans at little or no cost.
In an era when most reality TV is hypersexualized, about cutthroat competition or designed solely to make us laugh at the culture of its “stars,” DOGS OF WAR is as refreshing as it is inspirational.
