COM 100 Persuasive Speech Outline Example
Title: Pets for Vets
Specific Purpose: To persuade my audience to get involved with and donate to Pets for Vets, as this
organization helps to alleviate the problems of PTDS and animal crowding.
Attention Grabber: My brother, Scott, is an Army Veteran who served in Iraq on at least 5 different
occasions. When he got back from his last tour, he had an incident involving him having a flashback
while cooking his lunch. His dog, Ozzy, saved his life. While Scott was in his flashback, Ozzy was
weaving in and out of his legs, trying to snap him out of it. Soon after Ozzy was doing the weaving,
Scott came back. Scott’s food was burnt but Ozzy saved him. *Part of an interview conducted with Scott
Relevance Statement: Most everyone either has a family member or knows someone who has served in
the military. With the increasing number of soldiers who come back with PTSD, I’m sure everyone
knows someone who suffers from it. Also, many of us have animals or know someone who has an
animal. Therefore, this speech is relevant to everyone in this classroom.
Credibility Statement: I have my own personal connection to family members who have PTSD, and I
have conducted research. I also own a pet.
Thesis Statement: There are two major problems that need to be addressed: PTSD of veterans returning
home from war; and, animal overcrowding, which is leading to euthanasia. There is one solution that
can help solve this problem – getting involved in Pets for Vets.
Transition: To begin, let’s look at the problems of PTSD and animal overcrowding.
A. The problems of PTSD and animal crowding are plenty.
1. Soldiers are coming home with emotional wounds (i.e. – PTSD) (NIMH, 2013).
a. PTSD is post-traumatic stress disorder (NIMH, 2013).
b. PTSD affects every aspect of living. People who have this disorder (like me) are afraid to
leave their home to go and do anything (US Department of Veterans Affairs, 2012).
2. The problem of animal crowding is leading to many dogs being euthanized.
a. The dogs that are on death row at animal shelters, Pets for Vets are also trying to save
b. There are six to eight million dogs and cats in animal shelters right now.
c. There are over 1.4 million dogs euthanized at shelters.
Transition: Now that we understand why PTSD and animal crowding are problems, let’s look at their
B. We now need to gain an understanding of the causes of PTSD and animal overcrowding.
1. Cause of PTSD is seeing traumatic events in combat-related situations.
a. Seeing people get killed, being in an IED explosion or seeing one, and seeing young
kids get thrown into war are some examples of PTSD.
b. Just because you get sent home, your traumatic events won’t leave you. You have to
live with these events day in and day out (NIMH, 2013).
2. The cause of animal crowding is because of the millions of dogs that are abandoned or
surrendered each year, which causes the shelters to be overfilled. This is what also leads to
a. People can’t afford dogs anymore, people don’t have time for the dogs anymore, some
dogs are vicious, and some dogs are strays.
b. Because of so many dogs being surrendered and not enough adoptions, the longer the
dog goes without being adopted, the more likely it will be put to sleep.
c. This is also a major problem right here in the state of Arizona (Arizona Animal
Welfare League, 2013).
Transition: We now understand the problems associated with and the causes of PTSD and animal
overcrowding. Lastly, let’s explore a solution that can help solve both of these problems.
C. Pets for Vets can help solve both of the problems we just discussed.
1. Owning a dog can lift your mood or help you feel less stressed, especially for veterans
suffering from PTSD (“Pets for Vets Help to Heal War Heroes”, 2010).
a. Dogs have always made good companions. They allow the veteran to experience
emotion, help the veteran have fun, and help the veteran to get out of the house.
b. One veteran who suffered from PTSD and TBI was no longer dependent on medication
just one month after receiving a Pets for Vets companion dog.
2. Shelter dogs facing euthanasia are specifically selected for each veteran to match his or her
a. Professional animal trainers will rehabilitate the shelter dogs using positive
reinforcement and teach the dogs good manners to fit into the veteran’s lifestyle.
b. The dogs are given a second chance with the Veterans and it frees up space in shelters
(Helping Pets, Healing Vets, n.d.).
Transition to Conclusion: In conclusion, because of the dedication by Pets for Vets, dogs and Veterans
who suffered from traumatic events can help each other heal their emotional wounds.
Summarize Thesis and Key Points: It is my hope that people will see how important this organization
is to both our Veterans and our dog population and will donate their time and/or money to helping Pets
for Vets. Many Veterans suffer from PTSD caused by traumatic events experienced in combat-related
situations. Many dogs are put on death row each year that deserve a second chance at life. Pets for Vets
pair these dogs with the Veterans who suffer from PTSD in an effort to help both parties overcome their
Memorable Closing: Bringing together man’s best friend and our returning soldiers; showing them both
that we have not forgotten.
