Chris' Pets for Vets - PTSD Awareness

The strong emotional bond between a pet and a military vet helps them cope with the stress and struggles of daily life, and lead them down the road to emotional recovery from PTSD” – Jo-Ann Clark, Stratham NH

Vitamin Mom proudly supports Chris' Pets for Vets - a fundraising campaign of Annie's Angels Memorial Fund based in New Hampshire.  Throughout the month of November, in honor of Veteran's Day, Vitamin Mom will donate a portion of proceeds to Chris' Pets for Vets

Chris' Pets for Vets works with local animal shelters will pair veterans with a free pet to help  cope with PTSD, helping to heal the deep emotional scars, and possibly save lives.

This fund is created in honor of Christopher Journeau for PTSD awareness. Chris served with the US ARMY, 1st Battalion, 21st Infantry, 2nd Stryker Brigade Combat Team while fighting in Operation Iraqi Freedom. At the age of 23 and six months after his return home to Stratham, NH, he took his own life. The end result was he had been suffering from PTSD and nobody knew it until it was too late.
