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?

 END OF WATCH: MWD Branco (K281): It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of NAVY MWD Branco who bravely served in Afghanistan with his NAVY handler Chris. Branco was retired in 2011 and adopted by Chris and his wife Cait to live out his remaining years. Our entire family will be forever grateful to Branco for his service and his amazing loyalty. Goodbye sweet boy, you are always in our hearts and will never be forgotten.
Jason, a Marine working in Afghanistan has been adopted by a bundle of love named Charlie. Charlie, suffering from hunger and an infection known as leishmaniosis wrangled her way into Jason’s heart. He and the team at his compound have been caring for Charlie, and with the help of Nowzad , she has begun the life-long treatment to rid her of her infection, and keep her healthy and happy. 
Jason’s friend back here in the U.S. is a professional dog trainer and he has volunteered to ensure that Charlie becomes a certified PTSD companion for a veteran in need once she can be transported to the States. 
Charlie is now FULLY FUNDED!  Thanks to everyone who donated.   We will keep you posted as to her arrival in the USA.
