Paws & Patriots

Jeffrey Rouch and his canine companion, Augie, brought some adorableness to the Winging It set today to talk about the Erie County SPCA’s Paws & Patriots Program.

The program is dedicated to finding shelter animals who are in need of a little TLC and pairing them up with veterans who are in need of the same thing. Oftentimes, when military men and women return home from serving, getting back into their normal, every day lives can be challenging. That’s where the paws step in, helping our veterans readjust to civilian life.

Both parties benefit here, as the dogs become more social and human-friendly, and the veterans more relaxed, at ease and comforted.
