June 2016 saw us receive a request to help get 3 retiring working dogs out of Iraq and into new homes in the USA. Fortunately we were able to partner with Mission K9 in the US to make this happen and after a mammoth fundraising effort all 3 dogs made it out of Iraq and were found fabulous new homes in The States.
