Bring him home - and a blog hop

I know there are a lot of brilliant charities and rescues competing for our people's hard-earned pennies and cents and Euros - and we all have causes close to our hearts.

So I will completely understand if you can't help.....but I can't get this fella's face out of my head.

This is Tundra, and he's at the Nowzad Dogs shelter in Afghanistan while this great charity tries to raise enough money to get him home to America to the soldier who's waiting for him.

Obviously Nowzad Dogs are raising funds to help reunite LOTS of dogs (and cats) with the soldiers who 'adopt' them while they are out on active service. And they also do a lot of good work to help support local people to look after their companion animals. But Tundra's sister's already been flown out, and now Tundra is waiting for the little donations in his "Chip In" fund to mount up.

He's been waiting a REALLY long time, and so I've joined with Nowzad supporters on Facebook to do what I can this weekend to highlight his case.

Just giving $1 online this weekend (63p in UK money at today's exchange rate) could make all the difference. If you can't donate - or you have other causes you already support - maybe you could just share his funding page on Facebook or Twitter or anything you might be doing online this weekend?

This is Tundra's page -

Today I am again joining the Saturday Pet Blog Hop hosted by Life With Dogs, Two Little Cavaliers and Confessions of the Plume.

If you'd like to join in and make new pet blogger friends, please follow your three hosts, add your blog to the Linky and copy and paste this week's new Linky code into the html editor of your own blog. The list will automatically update on everyone's blogs as new sites add themselves over this weekend and we can all hop from blog to blog and find out everybody's news.

Thanks again to our three hosts for putting on the hop!

If you follow a new blog after finding them in the blog hop - please let them know that you found them on the Saturday Pet Blog Hop.

Hi Y'all,

Tundra does look so very sad.

It breaks all our hearts that the soldiers are forced to leave their companions who help them through those terrible times over there.

I hope the military will change their attitudes toward dogs. They can mean a soldiers sanity.

Just hopped by to say Hi!

Awhh, Tundra looks so sweet. I love that black muzzle. Thanks for sharing him.

Winnie said...

Tundra now needs just 764 people to chipin $1 for him, and then he can be on his way home to his sister and his soldier. Nowzad say that one generous person has offered to pay half of his chipin amount if the other half can be raised.

Hope Tundra finds his way to a forever home soon.
