Happy came to us when he was rescued by a soldier.

Thankfully after we shared his plight on our social media pages Happy is now living up to his name as he has found a very special home with another Nowzad rescue - Reah and her soldier savior Paige!

Here, they tell us why it is so important to get Happy home to them:

When I was deployed in Afghanistan, my heart was given to my darling girl, Rhea.
Since being home in the United States, she has shown the most calm and friendly demeanor of any dog I’ve ever met. She is well taken care of and loved unconditionally at home, but I believe there is one aspect of Afghanistan that she misses: having a pack. Rhea lights up when she’s at the dog park or at her dog sitter’s house. She wants to play and cuddle with other dogs. My boyfriend (Ken) and I have been searching for many months for a dog who has the same character and energy as Rhea.


Happy’s link on Nowzad’s Facebook page was shared to me via my mom (mother knows best).
After reading his bio, I finally felt like we’ve found the perfect dog for our family. He is literally named after the character trait we were most looking for in a pup! He gets along well with other dogs, cats, and people and has a playful energy.
Recently, we learned that Happy was brought to Nowzad by someone who promised to give him a forever home.
Unfortunately, the individual stopped responding to Nowzad’s messages, leaving Happy without a home. Not on our watch.
Ken and I would love to open our home to Happy to provide him with the same love and security that Rhea has.
We are confident that Happy would be a fantastic sibling to Rhea and is the perfect addition to our household.

 My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for supporting Happy in coming home. We also are forever grateful to Nowzad for not only bringing Rhea home, but for the opportunity to give Happy a family as well.

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 
The total required for a companion animal to travel to North America is usually a minimum of $5000 for a dog and at least $3000 for a cat (we make no profit and everything is subject to currency valuations and fuel prices on the day). We are sadly unable to offer refunds on donations.
