ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Florida woman armed with some puppy love is on her way to lift some soldier's spirits. Kathy Alexander and her 13 pooches hope to bring warm fuzzy feelings to wounded soldiers across the nation.
The dogs have been providing pet therapy to nursing homes for over 10 years, but in the next month they will be traveling to military bases across the country. Their first stop is Fort Benning where they hope to bring smiles to the men and woman serving our country.
"It's got people to lift up and move limbs that they normally wouldn't move. It's unbelievable when you see it at work. It's just the unconditional love that a pet can provide that you can't get from a human,' said Alexander.
Pet Therapy is a non-profit agency started in 1997. Anyone interested in donating to the organization can click here.
