By Published: March 13, 2012

Three U.S. military veterans who have experienced stressful changes in their lives are now helping a group of animals that have encountered tough times.

The "Warriors and Wolves" program is geared toward helping a group of 29 wolf-dogs retrieved from a tethered existence an Alaska tourist attraction. At their new home northwest of Los Angeles, the canines are overcoming physical ailments and learning to run again.

"I get along with the wolves," said one of the three, Stanley McDonald, a once-homeless 10-year Navy veteran who has been foreman of the Lockwood Animal Rescue Center in Frazier Park. "They've been in a bad situation, which I've been in most of my life."
