Every year we reflect and honor our military hereos on Veteran's Day. 

However, the Butte County Sheriff's Office has a program that aims to serve our verterans everday.

It's called the 2nd Chance K-9 for Vetreans Program where dogs who are deemed 'unadoptable' due to behavorial issues are given to the program from the Northwest SPCA.

Officers train and socialize the dogs for months to prepare them to be good companion animals for veterans.

"We have people coming back from the service and they have ptsd and a variety of issues and research has shown one of the best things to help that is a companion animal," said Sgt. Robert Lyon, BCSO.

Veterans who sign up for the program can adopt the dog that best suits them and attend training classes with the pup all for free.

The program is funded by donations and the sheriff's office.
