Animals don’t understand borders. Compassion is a universal language. Members of the U.S. military are stationed on bases all over the world. That’s why our Operation Baghdad Pups program has expanded since its inception in 2008. To date, we have rescued over 540 animals from multiple countries in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. We are here to help military servicemen and women who need assistance rescuing a dog or cat no matter where they are deployed worldwide.
Until we see peace in every corner of the world, our Operation Baghdad Pups program will continue to serve wherever it is needed – just like the heroes of our U.S. Armed Forces. Operation Baghdad Pups was founded to reunite members of our military with the animals that help them through some of the toughest times of their lives while deployed during the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars, but now we are here to serve them wherever they are. We consider every request, regardless of the location, a chance for SPCA International to give back to our troops.
Do you know a U.S. military serviceman or woman serving oversees that has a special relationship with a dog or cat they befriended there? Contact Us for help bringing that patriot pet to safety in the U.S. where they can be reunited again.
