Soldiers comfort puppy in Afghanistan

We love our military, and fully support them helping to rescue animals overseas. This story was sent to us by the mother of a marine who adopted an abandoned puppy, Ally, from Afghanistan in 2009. Our pilots flew Ally from NY to KY when Marine Cpl. Lemmons adopted her upon returning home to a hero’s welcome. For more info on that story click here

Ears are often removed from puppies to prepare them to become fighting dogs.

    Thank God for people like SGT Kelly Carmody! When will people get it? Not only are they doing a disservice to these wonderful innocent animals, but to people who would benefit from their lives. They truly are man’s best friends.
