Police officer’s life changed forever by PTSD service dog Kal

Shawn Fougere, is a police officer living with PTSD. Shawn and Kal sat down with us to share more about the special bond they share. We were honoured to share this video during our time at the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics this past July. Each year thought leaders from around the globe and across disciplines come together in beautiful Oxford, England to discuss different elements of animal ethics. This year humane education was the theme. We were thrilled to share Shawn’s story as a shining example of the interconnectedness of the well-being between humans and animals. Watch this video to learn more about Shawn's story, PTSD, and how Kal changed his life forever. Make sure to SUBSCRIBE to our YouTube channel!
