Why does War Paws rescue animals abroad when there are so many in rescue in our own countries?

Almost all of the animals that War Paws rescues are animals that have bonded with serving members of the Military or Contractors who are based in the country.  When the time comes for them to come home they quite rightly do not want to leave their buddy behind so they contact us to help get them home.  No one would leave a friend or a family member behind so we do not expect anyone to leave their adopted buddy behind either.
