The Humane Society of Tennessee Valley has launched a new program that teaches veterans how to train shelter dogs. The goal of "Heroes and Hounds" is to help prepare the animals for adoption and veterans adjust to life back home. Veterans who enroll in the "Heroes and Hounds" program are paired with a shelter dog and begin training the animal. The dogs that complete their training, graduate from the program and receive a certificate. The veteran can then move on to help another dog. For more information about "Heroes and Hounds," visit the Humane Society of Tennessee Valley website at www.humanesocietytennessee.com or call 865-573-9674.
