No Buddy Left Behind

Rating
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 2008-and No Buddy Left Behind finally tells this story.

Reviews

"For Operation Baghdad Pups to succeed, a huge number of people from diverse walks of life--high school students, airline executives, veterinarians, military officers, journalists and others--had to work in concert, with patience, determination and selflessness, to get the animals safely home. This is the story of human beings at their best." --The Star-Ledger
