Marines in the Philippines Need Your Help
With your help, this month we hope to deploy an OBP rescue mission in a new part of the world; a reminder that US servicemen and women everywhere need our support. There are many brave men and women serving around the world making connections with animals that help them through tough times.

Military stations in the Philippines are closing and when SPCA International received a plea for help from Marine Gunnery Sergeant Kevin we heard the urgency in his voice. The Marines at a station set to close in July had fallen in love with 4 dogs that needed their help and now they desperately need our help too. Help Us Save JJ, Skid, Lobo and Kenny!
17 Lives Saved Because of You!
A dog and cat’s life is a short one in Iraq. If they manage to escape the horrible abuse, they are likely to starve to death or die painfully due to illness or heat exhaustion. These animals are rarely shown any mercy for they are seen as worthless rodents, a nuisance to society. On our most recent Operation Baghdad Pups mission to Iraq we were able to help 17 more dogs and cats escape their otherwise horrid fate. See Their Homecoming Photos
A Day in the Life of a Detroit Rescue: DAWG
In Detroit, a poor automotive economy and a dwindling population have resulted in a rise in crime and dog fighting. Animals have no value in this harsh world and are tossed out to fend for themselves. Learn about the horrific rescue realities through the eyes of Detroit Animal Welfare Group (DAWG) volunteers as they comb the desolate streets to help the thousands of homeless animals in need.

Everyone knows that caterpillars morph into butterflies – but what happens inside that cocoon? The caterpillar actually digests itself, releasing enzymes to dissolve all of its tissues. If you were to open a cocoon at just the right time, all you would find is caterpillar soup! But certain tiny cells known as imaginal discs survive the digestive process. Those discs use the protein-rich soup to fuel rapid cell division that forms the wings, antennae, legs, eyes, and all the other features of an adult butterfly. Cool, huh?
Please help our animal population - have your pets spayed or neutered!
