Today we got the amazing news that Animal Friends Insurance have awarded us a grant that will enable us to perform the first ever controlled rabies vaccination program in Northern Iraq. The funds will be used for a small pilot program to cover approximately 200 dogs, including stray animals and farm dogs.
At the moment the temperature in Iraq where we are, is plus of 40 Degrees, very little water and hardly any food is available, for a dog it’s a hard life many don’t survive the trauma of being born in such a violent desolate cruel and inhabitable place. The desert dogs who mainly come from European breeding stock have crossed bred over the last 100 years and are now Heinz 57 variety, every one of them an individual, every one of them full of character and every one of them are loving trusting animals. once you have gained there trust you have a friend for life.

2016 has just been the most amazing year for War Paws! In May we were asked for help in rescuing an adorable pup who was named War Paws. She had been found by a former Royal Marine on the streets of Basra covered in glue and bleeding and severely dehydrated.

It’s been quite some months since we last updated everyone, but it’s been incredibly busy and we know you understand it can be difficult at times to update from the desert. If you’ve been following our Facebook and Twitter pages you will know that Loki was rescued and sent to the UK for rehoming. He spent four months in quarantine at London and Essex Kents Farm, where he was looked after really well and definitely found his feet! We like to think he knew he was safe and just on his way to a new home. Loki has now been with his new family for 5 days and he has settled in remarkably well already. Whilst he has never lived in a house before, he soon found his spot on the rug and bounds around the garden with a smile on his face! Loki strayed from his pack as a… Read More »
