Operation Dog Tag

 Operation Dog Tag is an organization of wonderful people who love dogs and wish to protect them from poor living conditions, over crowded shelters, and being euthanized.

This organization began in October 2011 and works diligently alongside local animal shelters and foster families to save dogs and give them a better chance at life.  They work mainly with military families.  Military families band together and help with transporting and fostering these furry little friends until they can be adopted.  Each family usually has the puppies for 10-14 days before they go to their new families.

My family just began volunteering with this organization.  We are so excited to get our first dog tomorrow!  We will have her for about two weeks.  She looks absolutely adorable!  Our daughter can’t wait!  She is so happy that she gets to help rescue puppies so that they get good homes.  I know there are people out there that may not agree, but organizations like this bring so much happiness.  We get to help save these animals, place them with owners that will love them, and teach our kids the importance of giving and volunteering.  Our daughter loves all animals!  She is really getting the chance to learn that helping others is important in life.

If you would like to help out you can join their page on Facebook… www.facebook.com/groups/OperationDogTag/   We would love to have your help!  This also may be a great idea for some you ladies during a deployment!

    Oh, that is so awesome!!! My daughter (age 10) asked me a few weeks ago if we could be “foster” parents to cats/dogs. Great idea! Good luck! 🙂

  2. That’s awesome. Although, if we kept a dog for any length of time, my daughter wouldn’t let it go. We would have every animal in town if she had her way. This is a great thing, though. 🙂
