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?

Moxie & Airman Philip


MOXIE was rescued by her Airman Philip in Afghanistan.  He writes "I found Moxie in Afghanistan; Eyes still shut and brand new in the world. She nuzzled against me on the walk through camp, stayed calm, and it just felt natural that she ended up in my life. I instantly fell in love with Moxie. It was a quick and easy decision to adopt her and raise her in a proper home.. She was a comfort to me when I came back from missions. We slept on a beat up couch together, she slept on my boot when I fed the others, and she always calmed down when in my hands or against me."   NDGLB is proudly sponsoring the reunion of Moxie and her hero.

Old Blue Eyes (Jane)


US Army Platoon Sgt rescued Jane and writes “I have been deployed to a lot of countries and seen a lot of poor animals mistreated. I am just grateful I can finally help.”  Thank you soldier for rescuing sweet Jane and for your service to our country.
