March Animal Rescue News

After weeks apart, Sgt. Kerri and Freya reunited with a hug and kiss at a North Carolina airport. Freya is one of 16 animals the SPCAI rescue team brought home last month from the Middle East for U.S. service members.

Successful Middle East Rescues

When U.S. soldiers stationed in the Middle East see a suffering dog or cat, the animal-lovers among them can’t turn a blind eye. They scoop up that scared, hungry, and dirty animal, share their rations, give them a bath, and fall in love. As deployments come to an end, these soldiers can’t imagine leaving their battle buddies behind, so they try making plans to send their pets home to the U.S. They quickly learn it is nearly impossible.
That is when soldiers contact SPCA International with one question on their minds: “Can you help me save my battle buddy?” They know how terrible life will be for their dog or cat if left behind, and it breaks their hearts. Fortunately, our Operation Baghdad Pups: Worldwide program is designed with this exact issue in mind. The logistics are complicated, and the rescues are risky, but we recently made it to the U.S. with 16 lucky battle buddies who now call their soldier’s house “home” and their spouses and children “family."
