"living the life a dog deserves" in every state in America.
"I was trying to sleep late one hot night on camp in iraq and recall hearing howling outside the walls around camp. I thought it was a coyote or wild dog that found its way into the outside-walls somehow. It continued for hours until i had to investigate, expecting a large wild beast, instead i find a small puppy jammed halfway in between some boxes. He was stuck with just his legs sticking out, crying like that the whole time i had heard howling outside. I pulled him out and he peed on me out of fear. I decided to let him stay on the camp a few days, he was always sleeping in a box we made for him as a house, then wandering and crying at night. I discovered he came from down the street where a litter was born. After seeing this litter, sleeping on old rusty screws and dirt, chewing chicken feet and literally sleeping on trash bags, i knew i wanted him to experience a better life, one his small brothers and sisters and tired mom wouldn’t ever be able to. I decided to keep him and have seen him mature into a small teen hyper dog who loves to jump about and eat real food. I named him Atreus, which means fearless in greek, because he dared venture into the unknown where we crossed paths. I quite literally got to see his eyes go from zombie confused stare, to now a beautiful full of life green eyed playful gaze every day. He wakes me every night by pawing me to let him outside, and likes to ride in the giant military trucks. I want him to have a real life in the states and forget about this place and the heat, dust and trash. I want one good thing to come of my passing through this country, to give something new life and a chance they would never have before."
Meet Becky's Puppies~
She had 9 puppies and the morning of their pickup 4 were taken. Only 5 along with Becky are to safety at this time. Hondo (pictured) is safe and here is his soldiers story:
"This deployment has been an emotional rollercoaster . I often see dogs around and I’ll just give them water and go about my day. When my friend suggested going to see the new litter of puppies I went along . As soon as I seen Hondo I just knew I had to have him. Prior to deployment I was looking into adopting but everytime the animal I choose ended up getting adopted before I can do a meet up . I’ve already started looking up doggy beds and toys . Im really excited to add an addition to my small family."
STAY TUNED FOR UPDATES! We are trying to recover the missing puppies.
"Abe and I clicked from the jump! I’ve been struggling with depression heavily and when he walked up to me one afternoon he made all the hurt just disappear."
"I found Ada under one my generators at work and she looked so scared and hot. I was trying to get her out from underneath the generator and she wouldn’t move. Finally she moved and also allowed me to pet her. She kept nudging her head against my leg as if she felt very comfortable with me and after that interaction i knew i wanted to bring her home with me."
Ada was found to be pregnant upon pickup from the base and delivered 8 little ones early August. She and her puppies are thriving and will be brought to the USA once they are old enough and fully vetted.
"Bean is an adorable little kitten that has a playful demeanor and she’s very loving. I believe she will be a great fit with my other cat and my family. The 1st time I saw Bean. She would no allow anyone near her. That was 2 weeks ago. Ever since then I’ve fed her and made sure she has been taken care. She now allows me to pick her up and even brushes and rubs her body on my legs while I’m standing at the gate"
"I first met Rufas at the start of my 9 month journey here. He was a shy boy walking around and the only times I would see him is when he would play with some other pups around base. On days I would call home and sit outside my barracks I would see him come walking by or trying to find a cool place to lay near my building. I started bringing him some food and leaving water out until he would start coming up to my door and hanging out waiting for me. On a day I called home I stepped away from my call and He took to a loving conversation with my lady back home who gave him the name Rufas. He took to it like you wouldn't believe. Since then he started to follow my battle buddies and I around and start coming up to our office at work and hanging out if we would have a small BBQ outside. Now when I call home and read to the kids he somehow knows that's its family time and always finds me to sit and listen to what story I'm reading. Rufas always comes walking up wagging his tail, smiling, and waits for belly rubs saying hi to our beautiful blended Brady Bunch family. He's the perfect in everyway one would expect a companion would be. Now I get to welcome him onto the sofa and enjoy story time with the little ones forever and keep him safe and comfortable."
"The socks saw me and followed me. She was climbing all-over me and I so became attached to her. Now when she sees me she does a jumping run to me. I built her a little fort out of a shoe box with a blanket and one of my pt sheets in it"
" Nessi followed another embassy family home one day... and they just couldn’t bear to leave her on the streets of Bishkek. They wanted so very much to keep her, but had less than a month left on station, and knew there was no way to get everything done in time to take her with them to their next post in China. They tried so hard to find a loving furever home for Nessi, but with it being transfer season, the timing was just not working. It was very hard for this family to leave Nessi behind - but I promised to do my best to find her a place to call home! Well, I fell in love!! I have a beautiful place in the country on 5 acres back home in NC, and just can’t imagine leaving this sweet girl behind - again. She has adapted so well to people and socializes perfectly with other dogs. She’s got lots of life and love to give, and I would love to be able to get her home and have her rescue me."
"Leo runs with a pack of 4 other puppies (his brothers and sisters). I first saw him behind the field of the small bit of territory they have and when I tried to get closer to see if he was okay was chase off by his puppy pack. The following days I returned with food and as time has gone on they are adorable little pack. Leo is often off to the side but is playful in his own right much more calm than his siblings. I'm just looking to give him a nice home to stay warm and safer yard in which he can play in everyday."
Meet Bonnie's babies Princess & Jack~
"Princess & Jack were born in a cardboard box next to a trailer in Adana, Turkey. They have a loving mama and litter mates that they loves to play and cuddle with. Since they were found by his humans, their days consist of long naps, hunting toy mice, chasing each other, and the best... Eating! These are such happy little kittens that wants a permanent home and lots of love."
"Bonnie was just a kitten when my unit arrived at Incirlik AB, she lived around the barracks buildings in Patriot Village and was always sweet and sociable and asking for attention whenever we arrived back from work. Her calm demeanor and friendliness despite her surroundings and challenges caused her to grow on us. When she had kittens at the end of April we built a little cat house for her and her kittens and went out of our way to sneak her food so that she could stay with her kittens for protection as much as possible. Now with the help of some friends I would like to adopt her and provide her a safe and comfortable home here in the states."
Meet Daisy~ Lucy's baby
"When I saw daisy she reminded me of my first dog I ever owned, so naturally I picked her out. The reason for me wanting to rescue daisy is to give her a great home life. I own a Laberdoodle back home who just turned 2, she’s in great need of a new friend."
"Me and wife have rescued other dogs in the past while being overseas and currently have one living with us in his forever home. Dogs are more than just animals in our eyes and hearts and deserves to live their best lives." Becky will be traveling at a later date as it turns out she is pregnant. We will work on her litter with potential soldiers as the time nears.
"I found Chopper while conducting a Joint Military Training Exercise in The jungles of Guyana. I noticed that he was somewhat of an outcast among the other dogs in the area. They would chase him away when he would come near. I started feeding him and taking care of him, and we formed a bond almost immediately. He wasn’t like the other dogs, he was gentle and playful. I fell in love with him, so I contacted Puppy Rescue Mission to see if they could help. I honestly thought it was a long-shot, but I’m so thankful for PRM helping me get my new pup back home to Florida where he’ll be taken care of and be one part of our family."
"I was holding Dexter and he has the loudest purr for such a little guy. He seemed very comfortable with me holding him and he fell asleep almost immediately. When he woke up he was very snuggly and it reminded me of the moment I fell in love with my kitty back home. I knew right away I needed to protect this incredibly sweet little kitten and give him a loving home. I called my boyfriend to ask if we can adopt him and to my surprise he not only said yes but he was super excited. Mickey (my current cat) is very much so a mamas girl and my boyfriend is very excited to have himself a cuddly kitty as well.."
"I met Truffles very early into my deployment. I walked up to her thinking she was some fat street cat. Once I walked up to her I saw she was heavily pregnant. I was so scared for her as she has such a tiny frame. I knew she either wouldn't make it through her labor or her kittens wouldn't. Truffles successfully had her three babies on April 14, 2023. She was such a good mama to them and made sure they never ventured too far away. She always made watched as they played and made sure that when I brought her dinner that they ate too.
She even fostered a stray kitten that was brought to my office until it too got adopted. Truffles is the best and deserves to have a home where she feels safe and loved for the rest of her life. With unlimited snuggles and always knowing that she will have a meal."
"As soon as I got the Romania I saw Sunny, this little orange tabby kitten running around, he ran right up to me and i immediately fell in love. Ever since then he’s shown up at my tent almost every single day and we just sit and play. A couple times he’s found his way into our tent and he’ll come to my bed and jump around. I really would love to bring him home with me, he’s made my time here so much better."
"Mars is Sunny’s brother, I would absolutely love to bring them both home with me so they can stay together. They’ve both made my time in Romania so much more enjoyable"
Story coming soon
"I am a chaplain in the Army and this sweet dog caught my heart. He will go to my family in Michigan until I get home."
"Maxi is a two month old puppy who is full of love and energy. We originally rescued Maxi’s mom Lucy and turned out Lucy was ready to give birth to a liter of puppies. The puppy’s have brought the morale of our platoon up very much! I would love to bring Maxi home so my kids, wife and I can continue to show Maxi love."
"We brought a dog back from our location that soldier's grew a very special bond with. With bringing Lucy back they found out she was pregnant. Once having her puppies, they brought a great deal of morale to us, one particular puppy though my wife and I grew very close to was Shadow. We have created a great bond with him and want to bring him back home to give him a great life and the life a dog deserves.
"Scout is the puppy of the dog we rescued I want to bring him home because the memory deployed overseas as he boosted my morale and has given something to look forward to going home"
This is a really hard story to read. Snow has been the "guard dog" for a battalion in Romania. She is so loyal and loving. She got pregnant and gave birth to 11 puppies and command (doing their job) ordered the momma and puppies to be taken to a field away from the site. Sadly all the puppies but 1 died. She and her lone survivor are now at the vet and as Snow is doing well 2 week old puppy "Spitfire" is hanging in there but is vulnerable due to being so young."
These puppies were found by soldiers on base when the puppies were 3 weeks old. The momma disappeared and they don't know what happened to her. Our friends in Romania picked the puppies up and have been bottle feeding them and caring for them. They are taking such good care of them. All 5 have soldiers and the families are so excited for them to get to the USA.
