A non-profit that helps vets – and rescues dogs

Each day in ways large and small, Bank of America customers and clients find ways to support their communities. Consider Clarissa Black, a Merrill Lynch client whose nonprofit organization Pets for Vets has paired hundreds of military veterans with specially chosen and trained canine companions. Iraq War veteran Blade Anthony credits Clarissa and DD, the companion dog she provided, with helping him climb back from the depths of PTSD—and with saving his life. See how perseverance, determination, and support from advisors helped Clarissa turn an inspired idea into an organization that’s changing lives.
