Save-A-Vet: The Other Forgotten Soldier

Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Holmes Student Center, Capitol Room 600 Lucinda Ave

Save-A-Vet helps rescue military working dogs (MWD) from being put down when their service to our country is done. SAV provides housing for disabled veterans in exchange for caring for the dogs. Danny Scheurer, accompanied by Retired Military Working Dog Nero, from SAV will come to NIU and present on the hardship of placing these dogs due to their attack training, field experiences, or injuries suffered in the line of duty (including the same PTSD that afflicts many of our fellow human veterans).
