Why International?

One of the most common questions we receive is why do you help international dogs when there are so many in the US that need help. Well the answer for me is always quite simple “They need me more”. However, anyone that knows me also knows that I wish I could help them all.

The small amount of dogs we re-home annually is just a drop in the bucket but we believe in compassion without borders and that each life matters. Change begins with awareness and each wonderful dog that gets adopted has their story told over and over thus helping to raise awareness.

Many of you are aware of the degree and extent of abuse, neglect and suffering that the street dog around the world faces.

Just when I thought I had seen it all. It is even hard to imagine the struggles and suffering of the dogs in Iran and many places around the world.
