HOT SPRINGS, AR- Service dogs for veterans give companionship 24 hours a day, but many still see them as just dogs.
That is why some Hot Springs High School students are helping to change that.
The All Pets Center in Hot Springs was taken over by a professional film crew Friday.
Mike Vincent, or Mr. V, is the EAST program coordinator for Hot Springs High.
EAST is a program where students use technology to solve problems they see in the world.
They raised $3,000 in grants for the project they're currently working on.
Documenting real veterans and how their service dogs help them.
"We saw the holes in their life that was not able to be filled by people," said Mr. V. "Those animals are helping pull people out of their isolation and into society."
"I find the whole project interesting and really inspiring," said 10th grader Brock Butler.
Dr. Robert Zepecki saw the need for the program as a veteran himself.
When he noticed many people, even veterans, didn't know about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
"A lot of them don't know they have it a lot of them do know they have it," said Dr. Zepecki.
Hoping with the help of these students that they'll get the word out in an interesting way.
"On behalf of all veterans we're just very grateful for that," he said.
