The Puppy Rescue Mission is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization founded by Anna Cannan in 2010. The aim of the mission is to bring home soldiers’ “battle buddies,” the furry friends they encounter, while serving in combat. The Mission is constantly fundraising to bring home cats and dogs affected by war and loved by the soldiers who rescue them, and has saved over 700 dogs to date!
Robin Foschini is a rescuer who supports Tigger House, a shelter in Kabul where dogs and cats wait for funds to be raised so they can fly to their new homes to meet their soldiers. Robin explains the joy experienced when delivering a dog to his soldier.
Jersey Jack was initially known as Jack from Iraq, as he was flown to the US after being beaten and tortured in Iraq. Due to his injuries, Jack’s leg had to be amputated and he suffered from significant post traumatic stress. Robin agreed to foster Jack, but upon meeting him realized she could offer him the home he needed and deserved. Robin maintains Jack’s Facebook page, Jersey Jack’s Corral, where she provides updates every night on Jacks activities and adventures to his over 700 followers!
If you are interested in supporting this wonderful organization, please go to their website for more information. The mission is always looking for financial contributions of any amount (remember, small changes among the masses can have a massive impact around the world!), but also needs supplies and volunteers to help with the transportation of the rescues from their arrival at the airport to their new homes throughout the US (which will prove to be an incredibly rewarding journey!)
