A Pets For Vets Match Story

Ernie and Valor

Ernie Baker joined the Marines eight days before 9/11. He completed two tours in Iraq. Like many of our returning veterans, he suffers from PTSD.

Pets for Vets has paired him with Valor is a rescue dog, a two-year old Belgian Malinois.

“I found when I had a dog in the past that I was able to sleep a little better. I guess because he’s always on alert, if you look at this dog, he’ll always be on alert, he’d scare anybody off,” said Baker.

“We’re fortunate today to have a lot of structure, a lot of support for the vets who are getting out. One example is Pets for Vets,” said Baker.
