Dogpile.com’s Search & Rescue Program Helps Soldiers Bring Home Rescued Dogs from Afghanistan

Last November, Dogpile.com launched its “Search and Rescue” program that donates money to animal-related charities. The program also helps people find help for needy animals.

Two soldiers in Afghanistan found out about the program and looked for assistance in bringing two stray dogs they’d rescued home to the U.S. The soldiers tours of duty were coming to an end and they couldn’t bear to leave their new best friends behind. When Dogpile learned of the program, they agreed to sponsor the trip for the dogs.

Here’s video of the dogs arriving in the U.S. and being picked up by the wife of one of the soldiers:

Dogpile.com’s Search and Rescue program has already raised $100,000 for the ASPCA. Last August, Dogpile.com announced a partnership with Petfinder.com (which is where I found our new dog Ruby!)
