Rescue dogs helping mother-daughter veterans adjust to more stable life

A pair of rescue dogs is lending a helping paw to local veterans in need.

Sabrina Lacey and her daughter, Daja, were each given a friendly pooch from Save-A-Pet in Port Jefferson Station. Sabrina has been deployed several times since 2002 and Daja was deployed to Afghanistan in 2007.

Both women suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, but say having a dog has forced them to get out of the house and stay active.
