#MyStoryMonday: Karen Scott and Griff

Karen Scott and her infamous dog, Griff, represent the Red Cross Bluegrass Area Chapter with warm fuzzy hugs and wet noses at their local Veterans Hospital PTSD unit. Griff, a trained PTSD dog, goes above and beyond volunteering his time at the Leestown VA. 

PTSD does not go unnoticed with the Red Cross, especially not with Griff and his uncanny ability to know which patients need extra attention. Not only are soldiers ready to see Griff each week, but also the staff who spoil Griff with many pats and kinds words. Karen states “the visits will never stop,” and she can tell how appreciative veterans are by being polite and thankful for the visits. The Red Cross is grateful for Karen and Griffs weekly PAWSitive visits!
