Operation Baghdad Pups
Helping Returning Military Personnel Reunite With Their Dogs and Cats
SPCA International has set up a program called Operation Baghdad Pups to help U.S. military personnel who have befriended stray animals in the war zones bring their best friends back home with them.
Their motto is “no buddy gets left behind.” The program “provides veterinary care and coordinates complicated logistics and transportation requirements in order to reunite these beloved pets with their service men and women back in the U.S.”
Supporting this wonderful effort is a great way to say “THANK YOU” to our veterans on Veterans Day. These people have risked their lives at war, we should all be grateful for our service personnel who do the jobs they are called upon to do on our behalf.
Please visit the website and read some of the stories of dogs and cats who have made life in the war zones more bearable for our fighting men and women, and how Operation Baghdad Pups can help bring more of them home to give comfort and support to our returning troops.
The website has information about how one can donate to these laudable efforts. There is also information about how one can request assistance in bringing a dog or cat home from the war.
