SHALLOTTE — After falling on difficult times in 2014, Air Force veteran Harold Palmquist of Phoenix found himself seeking a homeless shelter not only for himself, but for his four-legged companion Daisy.

“I was living in a motel, and they said they can’t accept my dog,” Palmquist said. “They barely had enough beds for humans, so I was just about to hit the street.”
