Over the years SPCA International has brought home over 560 dogs and cats for U.S. military personnel, but it's not every day that we get to see a reunion like this firsthand. We're sure you will remember Sgt. Jacob and Jax. In April, many of you contributed to an outpouring of support for Jax rescue from Afghanistan. We are delighted to be able to share their reunion with you through this video. Thanks goes to PAWSitive for doing an amazing job creating this video and capturing the true spirit and purpose of OBP:Worldwide. Watch Their Reunion!

Bingo, Scrappy and Whiskey could hardly believe that they would get to spend the rest of their lives with the soldiers who cared for and loved them while they were serving overseas. See Their Photos!

Hey, Did You Know?
Flamingos are famous for more than being a cheeky decorative piece for your front lawn. Flamingos use their beaks as shovels to dig for their dinner underwater. They scoop up shrimp, snails and algae with ease. They also have webbed feet that help them take flight as they walk through water. Luckily, for now, most flamingo species are not endangered, but it is only through a respect for their beauty and natural habitat that we will ensure they are here for many future generations to come.
Please help our animal population - have your pets spayed or neutered!
