"I found Golin during a patrol in Afghanistan he was pretty mal nourished and didn't look very good. He was small probably around 8 weeks old. He was small enough to fit in my dump pouch on my belt and I took him with me. I gave him water and fed him what we had. After a while he started to come around and be playful. I started feeding him real food and he started to transform. I've taken care of him since he was a small pup and I am not leaving the little dude behind, he kept me sane while I've been deployed. He always hung out with my whole team and we all want to be able to see him in our team room stateside."
"In January 2020, our old dog at home died. The following day a local threw this small puppy over the base perimeter wall into my work location. Fate? It was 10 degrees outside, the little girl was wet, covered in mud, shivering and half starved. We got her fed and all cleaned up. Our veterinarian checked her over, got the shot process started and on the road to a healthy, happy life. Now she needs to move off the base, and on to her new home in Washington state, at my house, with plenty of room to run and grow."
"We found the dogs as young pups on the side of a road in Kabul. They were on the verge of dying so we took them in and raised them up. We named them Tank and Lucy and they have become a part of the team. We can't imagine having to leave them behind."
"Living on Incirlik Air Base, no one can have their families or pets with them. Because of how close we are to Syria, the gates are closed and no one leaves the base...it's a bit like jail. Mental health is a serious
issue here because of the conditions and monotony, I'll admit, I wasn't doing very well. I was lucky enough to meet Picasso (named him that because of his paint-like splatter on his face) and his 3 siblings and began feeding them. They'd hiss at me and wouldn't let me come closer than 5 feet without running away...Picasso was the only on that would sit and not run away. For the last 5 months of my tour, I've
seen Picasso daily. At first, it was all of them but after his sibling died, it was just Picasso. He'd wait in
the field near where I live and when he'd see me, he'd coming running. I'd spend hours sitting on the
concrete letting him get to know me. Eventually, he grew comfortable and would come into my house.
Finally, after so long, he's a giant cuddle bug.
Having something to be responsible for while here has helped me immensely. I like to think that Picasso
and I were destined to meet each other...now I can't picture life with out him, he's kept me sane. Please
help us get to California together."
"I found this dog that had escaped the hands of the Syrian locals in a drainage in the street. The locals now know the I have the dog and have already jumped the fence to take the dog back. These people hang, beat, kick these dogs here. I have to get Zeus to safety so he can come to the USA and live with me in Texas. He deserves that!."
"Luna stole my heart that day I saw her. I knew right then I needed to help her. She had been wondering around GV so I had seen her a few times. One day she followed me to the house and that's when I decided I was going to be the one to help her and to give her a home. We had an instant connection. She
would follow me everywhere. I was able to get her on a schedule. She wakes up and has breakfast around 0730 plays around all day and eats dinner around 1930. She has to sit before I give her her meals. She is a very happy dog, intelligent, very playful and energetic. I can't wait to get her home so she can
become a member of the family."
"Wobbles was given that name from the way she walks she has a slight limp, she gave birth to her daughter snickers and two others but snickers was the only one left. They both were inseparable and that’s why I’m willing to take both so they can live together in a better life."
"She was the runt of the litter, constantly bullied and caught up in fights against packs of dogs, I was going to get a dog when I return but she was to perfect and sweet I had to make sure she lives the best life possible.".
"I was coming into work before a flight and I see this little dog. I greeted him and petted him and he starts following me around the flight line. Next thing I knew he was following me around all day and loves everybody at work. I could see he was under weight and needed some medical attention. I knew I wanted to get this dog home to safety and take care of him. He’s a big sweetheart who just needs some love in his life. Please help me get him to safety and on to the USA."
"Sandy was found hiding under equipment to escape the sun. She immediately came when called. We
know if we don’t get her out of the country the base will take her from us. She is the most lovable and
kind dog we have ever met and want to give her a chance at a better life."
"She jumped out in front of our truck and we decided we could not leave her there. I originally did not plan on keeping her but the more time I spent with her, I knew I had to get her home."
