Often when brave men and women are serving in a war zone they find themselves adopting one of the many stray dogs or cats that are struggling to survive there.
These soldiers are not only a salvation for the animal; the dogs or cats are often described as 'lifelines' to their soldier, providing a respite from war, a moment of peace, home and love.
When the soldier's tour of duty comes to an end, it is unthinkable to leave their four legged comrade that they've bonded with, behind.
Nowzad, a 501c3 based in the USA, arranges for the animal to travel to the safety of the Nowzad clinic, where we then provide shelter for the animal as well as vaccinations.
We also spay/neuter ALL rescues and provide any required medical attention. Then, we carry out all necessary checks and paperwork to get the dog or cat to their loving forever home – wherever it is in the world.
Our amazing family of supporters never cease to amaze us how they rally to reach the target necessary to get the much loved dog or cat home to their new life. To date Nowzad has helped over 1200 soldiers to be reunited with their four legged buddy from Afghanistan. www.nowzad.com
