Today, the United States observes Veterans Day. Thank you to the men, women, and animals who have served our country and to those who continue to do so. Your bravery is inspiring and, of course, appreciated.
Today on this Veteran's Day we here at I Has a Hotdog wish to showcase a very special program aimed at helping American troops in the Middle East get their furry friends back home to the United States. The SPCA International has a program called Operation Baghdad Pups which covers the costs of bringing a dog (or cat!) to the United States from Iraq or Afghanistan.
These dogs help emotionally support U.S. Armed Forces men and women in a time when they are away from their friends and families. On this Veteran's Day, take the time to thank a Veteran for his or her service and check out Operation Baghdad Pups if you are interested in helping reunite a fuzzy companion with a Veteran.
