Pets for Vets is a concrete way to thank U.S. Military Veterans for their service.

Specialist Steven Mangiameli’s life changed the day he found a Pets for Vets brochure at the VA. Ten years in the Army left him with depression, anxiety and a debilitating sense of loneliness. He spent many days in bed unable to face the world. He expressed to Pets for Vets that he was in great need of a companion. Click for full story.

Healing Vets and Saving Pets
At Pets for Vets, we believe our country owes military veterans a debt of gratitude. Our soldiers have been brave but many of them have returned with physical and emotional injuries that have made it difficult to transition back to civilian life. Some estimates state that as many as 20% of returning military veterans suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Our Story…

Pets for Vets is helping.

Our goal is to help heal the emotional wounds of military veterans by pairing them with a shelter dog that is specially selected to match his or her personality. Professional animal trainers rehabilitate the dogs and teach them good manners to fit into the veteran’s lifestyle. Training can also include desensitization to wheel chairs or crutches as well as recognizing panic or anxiety disorder behaviors.

It’s win-win.

Needy shelter dogs receive a second chance at life while giving our returning soldiers a second chance at health and happiness. The bonds of friendship formed between man and animal have the power to ease the suffering of our troops when they return from overseas.

You Decide! Who's Hotter: Jill Kelley & her 'Kardashian' twin sister Vs. Paula Broadwell Vs. Bobbie Allen

. .. And the serious world events that have taken place are now boiled down to the pleasing low simmer of brains like a Jerry Springer episode zombies love to consume (w/ out even knowing what or why they're being spoonfed) = Jerry, Jerry, Jerry!!!

Close friends: Jill Kelley (far right) poses with Anne and Holly Petraeus and her twin sister Natalie Khawam (far left)

Jill Kelley - whose own alleged relationship with General John Allen has led to his nomination to lead American troops in Europe being put on hold - was invited to the wedding of Anne Petraeus and Matt Mauney, alongside her twin sister Natalie Khawam, MailOnline can reveal.

Pictures taken at the nuptials clearly show Kelley, 37, standing just behind the elegant bride as she claps along to a band and mingles with guests said to have included Vice President Joe Biden - and illustrate just how far the ambitious brunette had infiltrated the high-powered political world.

All alone: Paula Broadwell sips a glass of wine after fleeing to her brother Steven's house in Washington DC

It was Paula Broadwell's threatening emails to Kelley that led to the FBI's discovery of the affair between the biographer-turned-mistress and the nation's top spy-chief - and then led to General Petraeus's resignation last Friday.

In another jaw-dropping development it was then claimed that Broadwell also sent emails to General John Allen, who leads the U.S. effort in Afghanistan, under the pseudonym 'KelleyPatrol'.

In the catty messages, she called Kelley a 'seductress', warning the general about becoming entangled in a relationship with her.

This in turn led to a dramatic twist when sources close to the internal investigation into the scandal said that General Allen exchanged email's likened to 'phone sex' with Kelley.


Bobbie Allen, 26, is a singer-songwriter who describes “her journey in to music as serendipitous but destined,” according to her website. Allen says that she was inspired by the Carpenters and that, since she was constantly moving around due to her father’s military post, “For Bobbie Allen, home is where the stereo is.” How poetic!

Elvis hooked Lisa up! Lisa Marie Presley @Mrsmalls tonight. @starheadbody
Serious Rock & Roll Royalty in Pittsburgh tonite via Mr. Small's Theatre (Millvale = just across the 40th St. Bridge from Lawrenceville). No wonder why when USA Today/Esquire Magazine named Pittsburgh the best place to rock, it followed by saying, " Mr. Small's reputation is growing as quickly as its fans are. It hosted Ryan Adams for a month of rehearsal before his tour with the Rolling Stones, and rapper 50 Cent and the Black Eyed Peas have recorded new work in its studio..."
