CARMEL - Twenty-two veterans commit suicide every 24 Hours.

Four million animals are euthanized every year.

Pets Healing Vets wants to change both.

On Aug. 19, Corvette Indy will play host to its Annual All Corvette Show. Corvette Indy supports many Veteran Organizations and this year, they will lend their support to Pets Healing Vets, a program facilitated by the Humane Society for Hamilton County.

Many veterans return from service suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and can't manage many of the tasks of daily life.

This is how Justin Morseth felt and was on the brink of suicide.

Then something happened His dog curled up on his chest and the thoughts of suicide dissipated. Justin and his wife Megan realized that there is a healing power in pets. They contacted Rebecca Stevens, executive director of Humane Society of Hamilton County, and she knew this was a program our veterans need.

The goal of Pets Healing Vets is to improve the emotional wellbeing of Hoosier Veterans suffering from PTSD or TBI by pairing them with carefully selected shelter dogs and cats in need of homes. Pets Healing Vets is the only program of its kind in the state of Indiana that removes the real barrier to companion pet ownership-COST.

PHV will cover adoption fee, all pre-adoption vetting (including spay/neuter), Basic obedience training, post adoption general medical care, food, extraordinary or emergency medical care for animal as funds permit.

"We rely greatly on the generosity of our donors and organizations like Corvette Indy to help fund our Pet Healing Vets Program," Stevens said. "We're so honored to be the beneficiary of this year's Vettes N Vets All Corvette Show."

"Our club celebrates many US Veterans among our members and we host a yearly Vette for Vets Corvette Car show so this program is truly a natural for us. We are very excited to work with Missy and Rebecca as a sponsor for this much needed program," said Wylie Estchield, president of Corvette Indy.

The day is free to the public. The American Legion is preparing lunch and can be purchased at a nominal fee.
