A one year deployment to Afghanistan led to meeting the amazing Sage Koochee dogs of the country and the subsequent rescue of 13 dogs to the US.
I would like to give special thanks to Randy Grim of Stray Rescue of St Louis, Pam Constable of Kabul Kritters, Andi Karcher, my wife Laura Schroeder, Juan Del Arco my right hand and Carey Neesley.
Carey's brother Army Sgt Peter Neesley passed away in Baghdad Iraq on Christmas Eve of 2008. He had befriended a mom dog and a puppy who were rescued and brought back to Carey in Michigan. Carey was instrumental in the rescue of all the dogs from Afghanistan as well as making two flights to the middle east to facilitate the transportation!
