      Operation Baghdad Pups: Worldwide Rescue Flight Behind the Scenes – New York to Home
      After months of planning it was such a relief to see our plane full of rescued dogs and cats touch down at JFK. Each animal had been rescued by a service member months earlier, before life was so drastically altered by COVID-19. The animals had made the long journey from Iraq, arriving in NYC at just about 2am. Each animal was given a health check up and monitored during their short stay before continuing onto their forever homes across the country.

      Bipartisan Legislation to Protect Animals
      It might surprise you, but there is currently no federal law against animal cruelty. While all 50 states consider animal cruelty a felony offense, the lack of federal law means local law enforcement often struggles with cases involving federal land or multiple states.
      Emergencies occur when we least expect them, Emma is here to help you and your companions prepare in the event of a natural disaster.

      Operation Baghdad Pups: Worldwide Rescue Flight Behind the Scenes – Iraq to New York
      With no commercial flights between Iraq and the U.S. and our kennels and foster homes in Iraq full of waiting dogs and cats, our team started to think outside the box. Our incredible Operation Baghdad Pups: Worldwide team came up with a solution – a special rescue flight just for the dogs and cats of U.S. service members. We were a bit skeptical at first. I wondered if it could really work. We asked for quotes from numerous airlines, and in the end, only one company said they could do it.

      Lucas
      Lucas was found in Azerbaijan with a horrific wound of unknown origin on his left front leg in July 2020. Unfortunately, his leg could not be saved, but thanks to SPCAI supporters and the amazing care of our partners at Good World Animal Rescue and Protection he received the emergency medical care he needed. Even with his painful injury Lucas never stopped being sweet and loving. Now this adorable three-legged pup is looking for a forever home, could it be yours?
