Home. Some pets never have one to call their own. We'd like to help change that by introducing you to an extraordinary adoptable pet every week. Today, meet April, a one-year-old border collie mix who is hoping this is her lucky month.

"Couch potatoes need not apply," reads a post from the dog's foster mom on Facebook. "This smart, playful, energetic love bug is looking for a home that can keep up with her. She will reward you with devotion and affection."

To introduce her beloved "first-borns" – dogs Lulu and Meeka – to daughter Everly, Jenna-Dewan Tatum made a plan before she brought her baby girl Everly, now 22 months, home.

"I took some of my hospital blankets ... when I was in the hospital with Everly that had her scent on it – it was one of the receiving blankets and something she was wrapped around – and I had it brought back to our house where our dogs were so they could get her scent," Dewan-Tatum told PEOPLE at the Shutterfly Launches Pet Accessories Collection with Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Hope for Paws event held at the Veterinary Care Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday.

"I would get up out of the chair maybe twice a day to go get food," the highly decorated former Marine Sergeant Major tells PEOPLE. "I would be in my PJs for days at a time. I didn't interact with other people. I didn't even interact with my family. I was in a real bad place."

Like thousands of veterans, Kuiken has suffered silently for decades from PTSD, which slowly eroded away his life, preventing him from going out, keeping in touch with family and friends – or even talking to his wife, Celia, and their children.
