Paws for Purple Hearts
Paws for Purple Hearts is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping veterans with trauma related conditions and mobility challenges by providing high quality service dogs and canine assisted therapeutic programs. TurFresh supports their efforts to improve the lives of America’s warriors who suffer from conditions like PTSD or Traumatic Brain Injury.
Pets can reduce stress, anxiety, lower blood pressure, and increase positive feelings. Scientific studies actually show that the simple act of petting a dog releases a rush of oxytocin. This “love” hormone promotes feelings of bonding and well-being. By caring for and training Paws for Purple Hearts dogs, we provide warriors an important treatment for their trauma.
