A great cause! Let's all get behind it and push! Everyone please contact their local State Representatives!
It won't happen without help from public awareness and participation.
We need to step up and speak out - this initiative needs help!

I wish them luck in getting their pets home, but this is an emotionally hard situation. I understand why these soldiers have adopted these cats and dogs and why they want to bring them back to the US, but with so many homeless pets in US shelters, is it really fair to bring more animals into the country and abandon those already here? Yes these animals may be killed in Afghanistan, but homeless pets are being killed in US shelters every day as well. Like I said, emotionally hard and I would never leave my pet behind either. Good Luck !

Once you've bonded with an animal they become part of your family, part of you, for life.

Signed! And I hope every solider that wants to bring their companion animal home, is fully allowed to do so without all this nonsensical red tape garbage!

THE USA government should fund this 100%

Absolutely, Kye! And Heather, I agree with you in one way, but I could never abandon my pet. And why wouldn't a soldier or Marine want the comfort of an animal to love? It seems, however, that you think it's OK to abandon the pets that comforted them in VERY rough times. And if they brought a pet back to the USA, why wouldn't a loving owner find a companion for their pets as well? I have three cats, and they weren't siblings, but they do support each other when family members are away. A visit every day or so from a caretaker is vital, but it doesn't replace their beloved humans. Think about it!

Help these pets come home. They were these soldiers companions thru all their rough times, now they need to be back home with them, in a warm loving home where their loving owners can give back what these pets gave them in hard!

Why does it cost so much to bring a dog to the US? $4,000 is a ridiculously high amount to transport a dog that isn't flying first class. Someone is making a boat load of money on the backs of the military personnel who want to save an animal's life.

Good organization. I already support 16 and can't add any more. So glad to see cats coming home with these soldiers also.
