    I'm writing from the States.  I just watched the story on NBC Nightly News (U.S. national T.V. news) on the Nowzad dogs who were just flown to New York to reunite with their soldiers.  I sobbed through the entire story - that was the most WONDERFUL thing I have seen in a long time.  I then went online and found the story there, watched it another 3 or 4 times, and, again, sobbed through the entire clip.  I knew I had to investigate your group further.  I've subscribed to your mailing list and am looking for the proper place in this website to make a donation to the Nowzad dogs.  BLESS YOU for this incredible humane undertaking!!

    This was one of the most heart-warming reunions to witness.  Thank you to American Airlines and all who made this possible. We are "over-the-edge" dog lovers, MUTSS and all.  OUR TROOPS and VETERANS DESERVE ANY AND ALL FORMS OF APPRECIATION, SUPPORT and HAPPINESS we can provide for them. GOD BLESS THEM ALL!

    How to I donate specifically to the cause of reuniting dogs from Afganistan with soldiers?  I'm considering making a donation as a Christmas gift to a family. Thank  you,    Elizabeth
