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 expenditure 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 40 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?

REUNION UPDATES

 

Jaime & Onyx

  
 

 

Jaime writes, “The base I was on had several friendly stray dogs. They were all living under a connex next to my barracks. Daily, I and other soldiers would carry them food; they were always so excited, and loved to play. But the harsh winter would soon be arriving. I knew I wanted to try to bring them home, but had no idea how to go about it.”  Jaime & Onyx were reunited in November, 2016.


  
Zach & Ellie
 
 

Ellie is here in the USA and reunited with her Airman Zach, thanks to the generous donations from TD Bank and their wonderful customers! Zach writes, “…Ellie will be welcomed into our home with open arms and given a chance to live a life without worry. Thank you so very much for making this possible, and be certain that Ellie will be well taken care of.”
