Operation Baghdad Pups: 5 More Animals Rescued in October
Over the last few days you have heard about the successful rescue of Charlie’s dog Puppy from the Philippines, but Operation Baghdad Pups has been in full swing! Just in the month of October, we have also been able to save 3 more dogs and one cat for Americans serving overseas.

We just wrapped up one of the toughest missions out of Iraq to date. With ISIS having essentially shut down travel throughout the country, we were able to move some very deserving animals out of Baghdad to the US, but it was not an easy task. If these animals could speak, they would have quite the story to tell…
Host a Pet Friendly Thanksgiving
Throw an all inclusive holiday party this year for everyone to enjoy – even the family pet. We know all of the foods on the "Don't" list but who only wants to think about restrictions on Thanksgiving? Here are a couple of recipes that you can share with Fido. We guarantee he'll think they’re just as good as leftovers the next day, too! Happy Thanksgiving!
Shelter Spotlight: Serbia
"Help Animals" shelter in Serbia started in 1992 on a mission to save dogs, and during their first 8 years, found happy endings for over 1,000. As the years ticked by, they noticed as the situation for dogs grew less grim, cats were being neglected. In 2013 they made the decision to focus on cats, and have become a beacon of hope for the cats of Serbia. SPCA International is proud to honor their work by providing a grant to help them continue to make a difference for these beautiful cats. Read more about their mission.
Hey, Did You Know?
Sheep were first brought to the United States in 1493 by Christopher Columbus. There are over 40 breeds of sheep in the U.S. and approximately 900 different breeds around the world. Sheep make a bleating sound and a baby lamb can identify its mother by her bleat. One mature ewe (female sheep) produces 7 to 10 pounds of newly shorn wool a year - enough to make a man's suit.
Please help our animal population - have your pets spayed or neutered!
