A Pets For Vets Match Story

Robert and Psy

Robert served in the Vietnam War as an Army Medic. He says that although a lot of the veterans who came home struggled to find something good about being in Vietnam; as a Medic, he knows he saved lives. But he still saw a lot of terrible things and suffers from PTSD. Due to regulations in his living environment, Robert can’t have a live pet—but Pets for Vets gave him the next best thing—a Hasbro Joy for All Companion Pet. Robert named his orange tabby cat Psy and says he’s a comfort to him. “They’re more than just a decoration," he shared. “It’s like having a real cat.” Best of all, there’s no litter box with this kitty
