I am reaching out to readers today to help the sweet dog pictured above. Her name is Aurora and she is a paralyzed refugee dog from Kuwait who needs a home ASAP.
The last time I wrote a post like this was to ask people to find a home for a disabled bomb sniffing dog named Igi. The German shepherd had worked alongside his handler at O’Hare International Airport for five years until he became paralyzed. More than 10,000 animal lovers shared Igi’s story and 130 people volunteered to give him a loving home.
I am hoping readers will work that same kind of magic for Aurora. Mission K9 Rescue has the funds to take her out of danger and send her to the USA. All they need is for a loving family to adopt her.
Igi went to live with April E. and her military family. His life has transformed from a service dog who worked for the Department of Homeland Security, to a treasured family pet.
