Military Puppy Rescue
In war zones across the ages and today in remote locales such as Afghanistan,
soldiers rely on the companionship, protection and security they get from their dogs.
Our soldiers AND their Military puppies and dogs are heroes
Dogs have provided heroic
service in battles for Homeland Security and wars throughout history.
Today, there are many cases where dogs are not official military dogs, but
may be a stray or a puppy from a bombed out community who makes his way to a soldier.
A bond forms and so the beginning of a lifelong relationship.
The Puppy Rescue Mission is a non-profit organization working with
groups in Afghanistan to arrange medical care for the puppies and
dogs of military personnel AND transportation to their forever homes
According to The
Puppy Rescue Mission website:
The primary mission is to help bring home the companions to
our soldiers serving in a war zone.
These wonderful pups have
families, soldiers and homes awaiting...they just need a way to get to their new home !
These dogs have protected our
soldiers in war zones and have been their best friend and companion as well.
They make the lives of our
military heroes better.. and we are better as well if we help in the quest to bring these dogs state side to a
home and life they have well earned
