Today our Sunday Salute goes out to our buddy Ben the Rotti and an organization known as "Nowzad Dogs".
As most of you know, we love and support the members of our military - and the allies who stand with us, shoulder-to-shoulder! And naturally, we're quite fond of fellow canines, as well. Ha roo roo roo! The Nowzad Dogs organization was born from a group of British Marines serving in Afghanistan who wanted to rescue the stray dogs who had become their companions during their deployment. Now the charity group supports the troops who are trying to help the stray dogs.
In Ben's words, the Nowzad Charity helps ..."support those soldiers who find themselves trying to look after the Afghan strays that seem to have no hope and by further funding the vital work of the Afghan rescue by helping them with their educational programme for children, free neutering programme for stray dogs and cats bought into the rescue and to help with the further welfare and local re-homing of rescued animals. They also support the Mayhew Animal Homes' training programme for vets from developing countries who are working to help the animals in their local communities."
We encourage you to click the icon above for more information or please visit our good friend Ben's blog - he is doing a big fund-raiser to help them out! Let's show Ben our support! Sounds like we'll have some fun in the process, too!
We salute the Nowzad Dogs Charity and our pal Ben! (And Dave sends Ben's mom more "woooo"s!)
