(CBS) — Military veterans can adopt a dog or cat from the Anti-Cruelty Society today – and have the adoption fee waived.
Having an animal is important for Steve Muniz of Chicago.
“It is healthy. And it’s not just my opinion. It’s all the opinions I’ve been seeing – what an animal can do for someone’s spirits.”
Muniz is a Vietnam veteran. He’s 62.
“I picked out a cat that would be beneficial for him too. I don’t want nothing moving faster than me at my house. I got a cat between 5 and 10. Me and him can just mosey around and… live as long as we should.”
