In the desert, a lonely soldier stumbles upon a listless dog. They trade glances. The soldier speaks a few sympathetic words and offers the pathetic pup a pat on the back. The dog whimpers. And in this seemingly mundane exchange, both of their lives are forever changed. In the four-legged creature, the soldier finds companionship, hope and a sense of normalcy that’s been missing in his life since he found his way to Afghanistan. In the soldier, the dog finds safety, comfort and an affection he’s never known. Over the days and months ahead, man and his beloved new best friend form an unbreakable bond made only stronger by the stresses of war, chaos, destruction and discord. And then, it’s time for the soldier to return home - without his battle buddy.

No Dog Gets Left Behind provides financial support to reunite military personnel with the stray animals they found and bonded with while at war - a $4,500-per-pet proposition that includes vaccines, medical treatment, transportation and more. While the financial investment is high, the relief, comfort and joy this program provides soldiers is immeasurable. To date we have brought home over 27 dogs to be reunited with his/her soldier.

How to help? You can support No Dog Gets Left Behind by making a donation or purchasing No Dog Gets Left Behind merchandise - a simple, affordable yet profoundly impactful gesture. If you are interested in volunteering or fundraising, please contact us. Can we count on your help today?

Currently Fundraising For K9 EGGY

 K9 Eggy was a Patrol Explosives Detection Dog working alongside coalition forces in Afghanistan with her Handler Erkman. “…She was a mascot, protector, and a reminder of home all rolled into one for the troops she served”. When her handler’s deployment came to an end, Eggy had to stay behind in Afghanistan. Eggy suffers from arthritis in her back and was medically retired in late 2014. Handler Erkman said “ there was nothing as hard as leaving Eggy behind in Afghanistan and I have been keeping my eye on her since I left and it is now time for her to come home to me”. NDGLB is proudly sponsoring the reunion of these two heroes.
