Current Rescues

Lola & Goat of Africa


"Goat and Lola Bufow were found when they were a few weeks old lying next to their deceased mother and siblings. The men in my company didn’t feel right just leaving them there. Especially because they were so young, they probably wouldn’t have survived. Since, that day Goat and Lola Bufow have brought nothing, but raised spirits, laughter, and love to my company. Everyone adores them. Goat is extremely playful and is the trend setter for her sister. She was the first one of the two to learn sit and how to inform us she needed to go outside. She is very smart. Lola Bufow is the shyer one of the two. She constantly wants whatever her sister has. These little rascals love human affection! When they get tired, they sit next to you and beg to be picked up and cuddled until they are fast asleep. These girls are amazing companions already and it would break so many hearts to leave them behind. If we are not able to bring them home, we will be forced to return them to the wild and the chances of them surviving are slim. "  


Lil Chewy of Afghanistan


"I found this sweet little thing at the Airbase.  She was in such dire straits and I could not leave her behind.  We will take her to our home in Germany where I am currently stationed once she is well enough."  


GOAL! Bandit of Romania


"My military unit is currently stationed outside Constanta Romania. Several weeks ago there was an incident where a Female dog was euthanized due to becoming aggressive towards people. Later 4 puppies approximately 3 weeks old were found. They are very frail and deprived of food/water in a hole where the mother was seen last. We along with other soldiers have been providing the puppies with food and water daily to keep them alive. Initially they were lethargic and very tired/ food deprived. They have become increasingly active and eating/ drinking water regularly now.  Bandit is the biggest out of the litter and has appeared to be the "big brother" figure for the other three puppies. He has been their protector and the first to step out of the little home they have made for themselves under a rock where they have been sleeping and where we have been feeding them. Although Bandit is the biggest he looked just as malnourished as the others when we first found them. I immediately fell in love with his big personality as the protector of the litter and I hope to give him a great life back in the U.S."


GOAL! Lefty of Romania


"Lefty" is a stray dog located on a Romanian military base near Cincu, Romania. She is missing her right ear and has a scar across her nose, but a very sweet and cuddly demeanor. She's loves to run alongside when exercising and will come when called. She would do great in a loving home stateside."


GOAL! Sasha of Romania

"Her name is Sasha she is beautiful always smiling and loving and goes everywhere with me I’ve been overseas for seven months here in Romania and there’s so many dogs it is so easy to fall in love with all of them but I’m going to test her and she’s very special to me she’s my family now while I have been away from my family at home my children cannot wait to meet her And I cannot wait to give her the best life possible she is like my child tending to her caring for her I love her with all my heart she’s a very special dog and I hope to get her back home to Pennsylvania hopefully you all can help me I think you so much"


GOAL! Cincu of Romania


"When my unit arrived in country, we were instantly surrounded by local packs of dog. It's clear that these dogs live a rough life but manage to sustain life through U.S. forces rotating through the training area. All the dogs there had nicknames based on their character or appearance. The dogs vicious cycle of life leave them scarred, lacerated, broken and hungry. The pack that surrounded our conex sleeping area rarely attacked nor took care of the puppies that were there. The puppies sort of just live there and rely on food from the U.S. soldiers to make it. If food were left on the ground for them to eat freely they would be attacked by the larger dogs for the food. At night while we slept all that could be heard outside was pack battles, screeching and cries of other dogs being attacked by other packs. It was especially hard to sleep when I heard the puppies being attacked. I found Cincu to be different than the other puppies. He was alone with no siblings and bullied by the other pups and most of the grown dogs. Obviously he was a love bug for us soldiers. I spent so much free time feeding him or playing with him, otherwise he would sleep all the time. Often in the middle of the road oblivious to anything around him. The day he followed me down the road to just lay down and sleep on my foot while I stopped to talk to another soldier I decided I needed to get him home with me. 



GOAL! Sam of Romania


I am currently deployed in Romania and I found this dog and named him Sam the man. He hung out with me and my company on the range for 3 months.  Sam & I  became best friends and I decided to try and bring him home.



Furda of Iraq


I are currently deployed in Iraq with a Special Forces team in Iraq.  There has been an increase in number of stray dogs put to death. I have found a young frail puppy all alone out on a local range. I immediately bonded with her. My dog at home recently passed away so with the sadness of that this little girl caught my attention. I will be heading back to the US in a just a few short weeks and cannot bear the thought of leaving such an innocent, beautiful little girl behind to inevitably that will suffer as a stray. I could have done just as so many others do; ignored her...or even shot her. But my compassion and mercy kicked in and I have given her a whole new outlook on life.  


Krispy of Syria



Rome of Romania



Bandit of Poland


Our first month into our deployment to Poland, we came across a stray German Shepherd puppy roaming the forest near our airdeld  She was incredibly dirty and malnourished and her fur matted and clumped but even with all of that she was still incredibly friendly, happy, and sociable. She followed us back to the airdeld we worked on and we filled a hard hat full of water for her to drink from and gave her a plate of left over food from our chow hall. We were sure someone higher ranking was going to tell us to get rid of her but it never happened and she has stayed in our hangar with us for 7 months now! Since we found her she has put in nearly 25 pounds, we brushed all of the mats out of her fur, vaccinated her and treated her for heart worm and fleas and ticks. Shes incredibly happy and loyal and boosts our moral every day we are here. She has become part of our unit and is like family to us and we can't stand the thought of leaving her behind. We named her Bandit after our unit call sign (Bravo troop 1-6 Cavalry Task Force "Bandits") she has basicially been recognized by our squadron commander as our social unit mascot! Please help us get her home!


GOAL! Tali of Iraq


I am with the 5-159th GSAB and am stationed in Iraq as the Veterinary NCO and the Battalion Resiliency NCOIC. In May, I had to go out to a location in Syria to check on some Military Working Dogs, just routine visits. While I was there, I happened to stumble across a puppy, seemingly about 14 weeks old. He was underweight, dirty and very timid. I took it upon myself to befriend him, feed him and vaccinate him. I ended up bringing him back with me to Camp, and we quickly became attached. I have since been responsible for him, feeding him, providing veterinary care and housing him. My Battalion Commander has even allowed me to incorporate him into the Resiliency Program, for Animal Facilitated Therapy. He has been a great emotional health asset, as we have received mortars and indirect here on a semi regular basis and have numerous young first time deployers. I have microchipped him, and registered him in my name, he has had all routine blood work and shots and is without zoonotic or communicable diseases. He is also registered as a PTSD service dog with the Assistance Dogs of America. He has become a member of my family and my ultimate best friend, and I couldn't imagine not having him home with me where he belongs.
