9780762782789: No Buddy Left Behind: Bringing U.S. Troops' Dogs And Cats Safely Home From The Combat Zone

No Buddy Left Behind unveils the life-altering relationships American troops serving in the Middle East have shared with the stray dogs and cats they've rescued from the brutalities of war. Overcoming monumental obstacles, Operation Baghdad Pups' program manager Terri Crisp makes it her mission to save these wartime “buddies,” get them out of danger, and bring them home to the soldiers who love them. How exactly does someone get animals out of a country at war when normal resources are lacking and every step of a plan to transport animals could get you arrested, kidnapped, or blown apart? As Crisp soon learns, each rescue mission from first to last is a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants experience, and no animal is truly safe until its paws touch U.S. soil. Terri and her team have saved the lives of 223 dogs and forty-two cats befriended by military personnel since February 2008and No Buddy Left Behind finally tells this story.

From the Back Cover:

No Buddy Left Behind is not only about rescuing strays but also about U.S. soldiers trying to survive the horrors of war and readjust to life back home.  Many troops serving in the Middle East share life-altering relationships with stray dogs and cats they save from the brutalities of war. Overcoming monumental obstacles, Terri Crisp makes it her mission to get these soldiers’ “buddies” out of danger, and bring them home to the people who love them.


So, how does someone get an animal out of a country where a dysfunctional infrastructure means that normal resources don’t exist, and every step of a plan to transport animals could get someone arrested, kidnapped, or blown apart? As Crisp soon discovers, each rescue mission, from first to last, could easily be terminated at any point, and no animal is truly safe until its paws touch U.S. soil. Terri and her team have saved the lives of hundreds of dogs and cats befriended by military personnel, and No Buddy Left Behind tells this incredible story.
