"First Dog From Kabul - Afghanistan War Veteran and Rescue Dog" Sponsored by Middleburg, VA Resident
On February 3, 2009, Elaine Broadhead, of Middleburg, Virginia, became the first Sponsor of a paws4peopleTM [www.paws4people.org] Afghan Rescue Dog when she donated the $2,000 it costs to transport rescued dogs from Afghanistan to the paws4prisonsTM [www.paws4prisons.org] K-9 Training Program at US Penitentiary – Hazelton, Bruceton Mills, West Virginia. These stray dogs were adopted overseas by American soldiers serving in Afghanistan, a country devastated by war and poverty. Some soldiers are able to bring the dogs home to their families but others cannot. These dogs become available for programs like paws4vetsTM’s [www.paws4vets.org] AfghanDogZTM program, which is part of a Strategic Partnership Program with the Wounded Warrior Project®.
