Some people tend to think that animals are lesser beings, but that is definitely not true. There is so much more to them than what meets the eye. They can literally turn people’s lives around. The pure love you get from them can heal the deepest wounds. This is why so many animals have been trained to become service dogs to help people cope with both their mental and physical health issues.

This particular story is just unbelievable. Josh Marino was a soldier in the United States military. He had been deployed abroad, but when he came back home, he realized that he had brought other things back with him as well. He was suffering from extreme Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. He felt really hopeless, and suffered from extreme anxiety every day.

One day, he decided he couldn’t take it anymore and wanted to kill himself. He got out to the porch to smoke his final cigarette, when out of nowhere, a tiny kitten walked up to him and rolled around his legs. This gave him hope. Josh ended up adopting him, and named the cat Scout. Thanks to Scout, Josh got his life back together and is now helping others with mental health issues as well.

Scout made such a huge impact in Josh’s lives, and this is just one instance of how animals can change people’s lives.
