Help a soldier take his beloved puppy home!
When Ghost was found, he was a skittish puppy afraid of people and barely surviving in a war torn part of Syria… where dogs didn’t fare well. His luck changed when he crossed paths with John, an American soldier with a big heart. Since that day, they’ve become inseparable buddies with Ghost always by John’s side.
The soldier is going home soon and desperately wants to take his beloved Ghost home. In his words, "I need to get him back to the US where he’ll be safe and not living scared in a war zone. My deployment is over soon and then I'll be able to raise him in Upstate New York and give him the life he deserves.” Help our deployed soldiers rescue, care for, and transport rescued free–roaming and abandoned dogs and cats—like Ghost (above) who want to go home with their soldier parents.
In Afghanistan and Syria it is common for dogs and cats to suffer from abuse and neglect. Many animals are free roaming with no families to turn to for help. If an animal is lucky enough to find its way to a U.S. base and is befriended by the soldiers, then the base becomes the animals' home and finds love for the first time in its life.
Greater Good Charities partners with Puppy Rescue Mission (PRM) to help these animals as it would be devastating to turn them back out into the wild when many have never known a different way of life.
PRM responds to soldiers requests for help by transporting their animal companions. Costs constantly change as a result of working in a war zone, in a third-world country, and at a great distance. Any dog or cat has to have a thorough medical exam, vaccinations, and a health certificate to be able to transport. Each animal also has to have a kennel or crate to transport them safely while flying.
You can help! Just $10 helps prove veterinary and transport needs of an adoptable animal being sent to a veteran for adoption.
Puppy Rescue Mission, Inc. (PRM) mission is to fund-raise and assist in animal rescue, foster and re-homing when needed, in particular animals bonded with soldiers, especially those deployed in war zones. We assist with requests, logistics, administration and fund-raising for the adopted stray dogs of war rescued by and bonded with soldiers. This may include vet care, supplies, transport and related issues. We work with or through other organizations that help our soldiers bring their companion animals home from war.
