JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Marlene Condon was injured while in the military. Now, she has two Labrador retriever puppies to help her emotionally.
"They're perfect!", she said.
The puppies, Daphne and Gypsy, were on their way to a kill shelter in New York. That's when Guardians of Rescue, a non-profit organization that's goal is to help animals, and people, stepped in. They rescued the dogs, and brought them to Condon so she could get the support she needs.
"I'm a mom now - twins," Condon said. "I don't have that constant somebody to help me when I'm sad or help me get through the rough times. Now I have two."
"This makes me feel great," said Dori Scofield, Vice President of Guardians of Rescue.
"We've connected dozens of dogs with people in need," she said.
Condon said her new puppies, and the program they came from, will help her in a huge way.
"I'm very lucky, and blessed," said Condon.
