Brantley Gilbert has teamed up with the ASPCA and Pedigree pet food company to provide companion animals to veterans returning home.
He hopes the dogs will make it easier for servicewomen and servicemen to transition back to normal life. He says, “For some people, a dog can connect unlike even a best friend, and for those who gave beyond the call of duty to our nation, I love the idea of matching them up with a trained companion dog to help them get their lives to a better place.”
Pedigree is paying to train the dogs and providing them with a year's supply of food.
Brantley will present a dog to a veteran every weekend on his The Ones That Like Me tour.
