Paws of War veterans dropped their leashes and rushed to hard-hit areas of Florida post-Hurricane Ian. The team at Paws of War took plenty of supplies and set up staging areas to provide assistance to veterans who were at risk even prior to the hurricane, including those who were homeless.

Veteran Animal Outreach Coordinator, Niki Dawson, joins Gayle Guyardo, the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show, Bloom, to share more about their efforts.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at 2pm on WFLA News Channel 8.

Bloom also airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.
