"It's so funny how something as simple as a puppy can make even the hardest, toughened soldier melt upon a few kisses to the face."


Peter with his faithful running partner Scooby, shown here on the summit of Mt. Marcy, NY

From Peter:
Dear PRM,
 For a few years I have been attempting to conceive a proper tribute to memorialize the more than 2300 American casualties from Operation Enduring Freedom. They occupy a special place in my heart, since I was working in the World Trade Center on 9/11 while I was attending college.

A little about myself; after college I worked in financial services, but 9/11 changed my view of everything and I became an athletic trainer. Over the past few years I have helped build a thriving personal training business focusing on improving athletic performance for young athletes, training individuals for various races and weightlifting competitions, and also helping people, ‘evolve’ as I call it, from dysfunctional sedentary cubicle life, to a functional and healthy human being. I am also a local volunteer firefighter in my community of St. James.

In December of this past year I stumbled upon PRM on Facebook and began following this amazing cause. I decided that whatever tribute I decided upon must include PRM. And that’s when everything came together. The objective would be to perform one pushup for every fallen American soldier in Afghanistan, while also completing a half marathon distance of 13.1 miles. It’s a daunting goal, considering the Guiness Book of World Records for pushups is approx. 6000 in 24 hours, and I’m planning to do more than 2300 in under 4 hours while also running 13.1 miles of hills. But what would a fitting memorial be unless it was nearly impossible!?

Concurrently, this tribute fits perfectly with helping soldiers in Afghanistan bring back their beloved dogs who have bonded and helped with morale while on deployment there. I am hoping to successfully obtain pledges for PRM over the next 3 months leading up to Sunday, June 8th when I will be hitting the streets of Lake Placid, NY to achieve the full goal during their annual Half Marathon race!

Sincerely,
Peter Schwarting

Kuwait Sarge
Meet Sarge!! Sarge is currently in Kuwait and is looking for a forever home here in the US! Please email adopt@thepuppyrescuemission.org for more info!

This proud and majestic dog is Sarge. Sarge is a Border Collie/Lab mix who was a unit mascot that unfortunately had to be left behind. When Sarge's unit was redeploying back home, they were informed on the ADAP at KCIA by the ADAP Commander that a dog would not be allowed on the airplane. Sadly, they had no choice but to comply with the orders and directives of the Commander, and were forced to turn him over to another unit at Camp Arifjan, who promised to bring him home. When that unit redeployed back home, the same thing happened at the ADAP as before. They had no way to take him home, and no choice but to leave him behind in Kuwait. He was taken to a military friendly facility that was going to attempt to help him get back home, but time after time, permission for Sarge to come back to the US was denied by the ADAP Commanders. Now, this gentle giant has been sitting in Kuwait for close to 3 1/2 years waiting to come home to the US where he belongs, and we need to help get him back.
I met Sarge last week when he was brought to my attention, and his story told to me while I was in Kuwait on a mission. I was asked if I had any creative ways to get him back home to the US where he belongs, and I said I would find a way to get him home, one way or another. Sarge is a big goof. He has a LOT of strength and energy, mainly due to not being walked and not being able to play nearly as much as he needs or wants to. When I first walked him, he was so eager to go and play that he broke the snap on the leash as he pulled so hard. He is a VERY smart and inquisitive boy, and once he gets out and stretches his legs, he calms down and just wants to play. We gave him a bath, and I took the photos you see here. He was not a fan of the water at first, since it was very cold, but settled in and realized that a bath was not a bad thing. Then he gave kisses to all, and was wagging his tail. He seems to know some basic commands, but needs a little assistance since he has not had a structured environment in some time.
Sarge needs a home where he can run, play, and be very active. He is a dog who loves to please, and who enjoys exploring. He gets along just fine with other dogs, but was iffy around cats. There were several on the site footprint where we were, and his behavior was questionable towards them. I did not see aggression towards them, but I did not give him a chance to get close enough to see if any was there or not. He was very curious and wanted to make a beeline towards their location. He will need to get some remedial obedience training, but that is simple. He is about 70lbs, and is a solid boy. If you would like to adopt Sarge, please let us know. I am planning on having him in the US by the end of March, and would love to find him a home with a member of the unit that he served with........

More fundraising pages coming soon for each of these puppies.    Will you help us get these sweet puppies to FREEDOM? PAW SALUTE!!!

GOT KITTIES!!! 
Currently have 5 rescue kitties in Kuwait needing homes, some of which were rescued by US soldiers in Iraq & Kuwait.  Please email adopt@thepuppyrescuemission.org for more infoKUWAIT KITTIES

STUMPY
8 year old female
Stumpy was rescued as a tiny kitten by soldiers in Iraq. She Was being beaten and tortured by local boys so badly then when she was rushed to the vet by the soldier that found her she had to have her leg amputated as it was severed from the bone. She was adopted in Kuwait, where she stayed with a German lady for 6 years. When she wanted to leave Kuwait she decided to euthanize her. I could not let that happen and I took her home. She was adopted by another lady from Turkey that kept her for a year and then one day just left her in a cage in the middle of the hottest summer month outside my door. When I reached home after work in the evening stumpy was barely moving. It was 55 centigrade and she was without water. Since then she has been petrified of cages. Also when she came she was not able to eat. She would jump in excruciating pain running and hissing at herself because she had a terrible toot infection. We took her to the vet immediately and she had to have around 10 teeth extracted as they were completely decomposed. She can only eat wet food now. She loves being stroked and loves attention. She should be ideally in a household with no other cats or at least not a lot. She is currently in the room with 17 other cats but I know that its stressful for her.

KITCO
1 year old female
Kitco was rescued from the inside of a rubbish bin at Camp Arafjan. Someone put her in a plastic bag and threw her in the trash. A soldier passing by heard meowing and stopped … she dug through the garbage and found her tied in a black garbage bag. She was only 3 weeks old and needed mummy milk. She knew me and we brought her to my house and started immediately with trying to rehydrate her. A month later she developed terrible ringworm that covered her full body . Her immune system was so weak that she was catching everything. At the same time she got a terrible flu which lasted 3 months. No antibiotics helped until one day we rushed her to the hospital because she could not breathe and was suffocating. She spent 3 weeks in the hospital. She is an extremely lucky cat and she is a real sweetheart. She would need some time to adjust to a new place and will meow a lot in the beginning until she gets used to a new place. She is staying with 17 cats and is very playful. She has 3 best buddies and they always sleep together and play together.

9 LIVES
1.5 years old girl.
9 Lives has already used 3 of her lives. She was found as a 3 week old kitten in the rubbish bin left to die at Camp Arafjan. She still needed her mother and barely survived. She was found with a terrible eye infection and completely dehydrated and starved. The soldiers that found her nursed her back to health. She was a very sweet and happy kitten and loved people a lot. One day she managed to get out of her room and ventured into the territory of their big dog. Being the happy and jolly kitten that she was she came too close to the dog which attacked her and bit her on the head. She was rushed to the vet and the doctor said she has sever brain trauma and most probably will not pull through. She was blind and for 2 months just kept going around in circles. Once again she pulled through and thats when the soldiers decided that its too dangerous to keep her in the same area as the dog and gave her to me. 2 weeks after 9 lives came to my place she developed a fever of 42 and could not walk. Once again she was rushed to the vet who said that she has a very slim chance of survival as she go nerve damage. 9 lives miraculously pulled through again :) She is now healthy but still has partial blindness and still bumps into things occasionally. She is very scared of new surroundings but with tlc and a forever home will be able to feel the love again. She is currently in a room with 17 other cats (all rescues) and does not get much of the one on one attention that she really needs. I would love to find her a home with a military person who would be willing to care for her in the US.
CUDDLES
1 year old male
Cuddles, exactly like Kitco, was found in a plastic bag in the rubbish bin on Camp Arafjan when he was 3 weeks old. He was so dehydrated that his skin was completely dry and when pinched would stay pinched for a good few minutes… there was not a drop of moisture in his body. He is probably my favorite foster cat. He is the most wonderful cat ever. You can carry him , twist him blow bubbles on his stomach turn him upside down squeeze him and he will never run away or hiss .. he just purrs. He is extremely beautiful and deserves a really wonderful home. He is by far the most perfect cat anyone could have. He is not destructive, extremely cuddly loves people, good with cats and dogs and fantastic with people. He is a real treasure.
MAYA
5.5 year old female
Maya was rescued by soldiers at Camp Arafjan after being badly abused and beaten by locals. She reached us in a critical condition but after many months of care and treatment pulled through. She stayed at the shelter for 4 years living with 60 other cats until I decided to take her to my place and give her a better chance for adoption. She got adopted 2 times and returned as she was meowing a lot. Nobody gave her the chance to get used to the new surroundings and gave up on her in the first week. Maya is a cat that ideally should be with other cats or better even kittens. She has always been the mother of all kittens and all of them usually sleep with her curled up. She has been with me for over a year and is an absolutely wonderful cat. She just needs a little time to get used to the new place. Her purr is extremely loud and whenever I walk into the room her purr fills the room.

"It's so funny how something as simple as a puppy can make even the
hardest, toughened soldier melt upon a few kisses to the face."

                



Brownie’s Story: 
      I fell in love with kuchi dogs during my last rotation, after my unit adopted a pair of pups.  Having the two puppies on the camp drastically improved morale for my soldiers.  We ended up bringing both of those pups home, one of which lives with me.  About a month ago, I noticed the long rotation was starting to weigh on my team.  I decided that the best thing I could do for them was bring a puppy onto the camp.  I knew we wouldn't be able to leave a pup here once everyone was attached, but I also wanted a playmate for my kuchi dog.  I contacted Sandy about adopting one from your shelter.  Shortly after that, one of our workers overheard us talking about adopting a pup and brought one onto the camp for us the next day.  She's been great for the team and, as expected, I just can't bring myself to leave her here.
     There's not much to the story, but I honestly just love the personality that kuchi dogs have.  They're loyal, brave, and loving and will do anything for their family - without a doubt the most wonderful dogs I've ever had.  Her name is Brownie, by the way.
     Currently, Brownie has a case of mites.  We have her on meds and she'll finish her cycle in two weeks.  I don't want her passing these on to any of the other dogs.  We'll send up all her meds and everything with her.  Hopefully you can use them up there.
     Thanks so much for any help you can provide.  I'll have friends and family chip in as soon as the site is set up.

Crate Chipin



One of the difficult aspects of getting all the animals out of Afghanistan is crates. We here in the USA are so fortunate to be able to go online or to the local store and buy what our furry friends need. Many other supplies are always needed but crates always seem to be the most difficult to have available in Afghanistan.
We appreciate all of our supporters more than you can know and once again we say Thank You to all Team PRM Family & Friends. Supporting our Soldiers is such a blessing and this is our small way of showing them that we love and appreciate them. PAW SALUTE!


In Memory Fund



The Puppy Rescue Mission suffered a heartbreak at the loss of Scout, Stryker, and Sapper. These three sweet puppies were in a very remote location of Afghanistan and the team at TPRM, along with some on-the-ground angels were trying to get to them for transport to the safe facility. Sadly, before transport could be arranged, the puppies were killed by the Afghan police. The devoted soldiers and their families have joined us in turning heartbreak into positive action.
In that spirit, the "In Memory Fund" has been set up - to remember Scout, Stryker, and Sapper - and continue the uplifting work of bringing home as many battle buddies as we can.

Jazelle
http://thepuppyrescuemission.chipin.com/jazelle-afghan-dog

At combat outposts in Afghanistan, soldiers often adopt a stray neighborhood dog or two. They provide a huge morale boost for the soldiers there even if they're ornery, diseased and mangy, as the dogs often are.

Jazelle is the exception รข?? she is healthy, friendly and affectionate.

Soldiers from the Troop, keep Jazelle at their small outpost in the northern part of the city. About the size of a Jack Russell terrier, she trots along with soldiers on patrol every day. The Troop inherited her from the previous tenants of the Outpost, who took her to a vet at to get her shots.

"The guys leaving tried to take her with them, but she refused to leave the COP," said Staff Sgt. Bill. "She just falls in with whichever soldiers are staying here."

Thank You for your service Soldiers! It is because of men and women like you that we live in the Land of the Free. LETS GET Jazelle HOME!!!
