    Default Nowzad War Dogs: family member wants to send one home from Afghanistan

    My cousin is an Army Ranger on a tour in Afghanistan. He is a dog guy, already has one pit rescue waiting at home for his return. He has fallen for an earless, tail-less 5 month old pup and wants to send him to Maryland
    The british dog rescue NOWZAD takes dogs from Afghanistan and gets them sent to adopted homes around the world.
    My family is trying to do its homework and coming up a bit short on details. We have the funds in line and trying to get the furry one home.
    The website: www.nowzad.com/about

    Anyone in the know? Thanks in advance.

    Not in the know, but a friend brought a cat home with him when he was serving in the Mid-East. He didn't act like it was that hard of a thing to do when I asked him about, so maybe it won't be too bad an experience for you guys.

    Seriously, who wouldn't love an earless and tail-less pup?
    Rhode Islands are red;
    North Hollands are blue.
    Sorry my thoroughbreds

    JRW-I've recently read about that organization, and I think you should do a google search about it before anyone deals with them.

    Sporting- I've known quite a few people who shipped dogs and cats back (I used to work at Fort Rucker, the home of Army Aviation), and it takes money and organization, but if any of the aviation units he's in contact with include some Mississippi pilots, then ask them about the unit's rescue pups. I bet any aviation unit could tell you about that, because they've rescued a lot, and can put him in touch with the Mississippi aviation guys about who they dealt with getting their animals out from Afghanistan.

    I had just read this book so that's why I mentioned them. The book was about pets that had been rescued and the rescue process. I don't really know anything else about the program, just read the book.

    JRW-no problem. Until very recently I didn't know much about them either.

    I think there are some established ways to get animals out, and the sources I talked about before would be helpful.
