The nonprofit Paws and Stripes (Rio Rancho), founded by veteran Jim Stanek and his wife.
Paws and Stipes partnered up with Animal Humane of New Mexico to help train service animals for vets suffering from PTSD and traumatic brain injuries.
“We definitely want to be a positive stamp here in the community and to be able to be highlighted on a national program. It’s going to be great for our staff, volunteers and just the community alike to be able to witness this,” said Director of Adoptions Sam Blankenship.
The Staneks hope more people will adopt so they can bring in more dogs in need. http://krqe.com/2014/11/10/rio-ranchos-paws-and-stripes-featured-on-ae/
