Jeff the pup is one of the lucky ones. Saved from a short and lonely life in the wilds of remote Afghanistan. 

Here Jeff's soldier savior takes up the story; 

This is Jeff, when he was just a puppy his mother was killed by a vbied (vehicle carrying a suicide bomb) near the gate to our camp.
We brought him in and have been taking care of him for about 6 weeks now. I want to adopt him and bring him to home to the United States because he has become a very large part of my life. He goes with me everywhere, stays in my room with me, we eat our meals together, everything.  I couldn’t imagine leaving my buddy behind as I head home from a combat zone. 

Pen Farthing; Nowzad founder adds; ‘Saving a dog or cat, a defenseless creature caught in the crossfire of a war that has dragged on for far too long, is a piece of positivity in what is generally a long and at times dangerous tour of duty in Afghanistan for soldiers and contractors alike.
The dog or cat takes just as much comfort from the relationship as the soldier or contractor does.
Being there for these animals and not walking away as many do, changes the lives of these animals for the better. The least we can do is support them on their travels to their forever home. We are all part of this amazing rescue’.

If you are unable to donate online, then checks can be mailed via our office;

Nowzad Dogs NFP, 2770 Main Street #161
Frisco, Texas, 75033, USA

Please include the animal that you would like to donate to in your mailing.

If, for whatever reason, the companion animal rescue is not successful (such as disease or injury) then at the discretion of Nowzad Dogs, the funds collected via this Fundrazr page will be allocated to support the vital daily operational costs of the Nowzad Dogs small animal clinic and shelter in Kabul. We have over 140 dogs and 40 cats (which are mostly all adoptable) plus the first ever donkey sanctuary in Afghanistan. We continually need generous donations to be there for these animals.

The total required for a companion animal to travel to North America is on average $5000 for a dog and $3000 for a cat (THESE are airline costs only! We as an NFP make no profit and everything is subject to currency valuations and airline freight charges on the day of booking). We are sadly unable to offer refunds on donations.

To receive a tax-deductible receipt where applicable, or for any other queries, please contact: stating when and how you donated. He will be more than happy to support your request! J

Nowzad is a 501c3 non-profit in the USA and a registered charity (1119185) in England and Wales.
