Program Links Veterans and Dogs to Promote Change

ROCKFORD (WIFR)-- Last month was the deadliest month for military suicides. In fact the US Army reports every day at least one service member takes their own life

A local organization is trying to lower the statistic by combining pets with veterans to help reduce symptoms of PTSD.

It's called "Circle of Change", it's an organization that pairs mistreated dogs with veterans to help the mental healing process.

The program lasts 13-weeks and uses multiple lessons to teach dogs and veterans how to cope with stress.
