When U.S. military members are stationed overseas they sometimes find themselves making friends with stray dogs and cats. Recently, some U.S. Marines deployed overseas came across two stray dogs that shared a Romeo and Juliet story, so they gave the dogs those names. The two dogs loved each other and became mascots of the base. One day, Juliet disappeared and the fairytale came to an end, and now they don’t want Romeo to be met with the same fate, so a Marine is heading up a mission to bring him to the U.S.
“I was haunted by the fact that I didn’t know what happened to Juliet and I didn’t want that to happen to Romeo,” explains Staff Sgt. Bailey. “I reached out to Paws of War for help getting him to America, and they are coming though. I don’t think there is any way he could survive out here on his own.”
“Bringing a dog here from overseas is difficult and costly, especially when they are stationed in places without a commercial airport,” says Robert Misseri, co-founder of Paws of War. “Time is of the essence and we are doing everything we can to reunite these two. This is an expensive rescue, and we do not charge our heroic military a penny for these rescues. We couldn’t do this without the continued support of people in the community, who donate money to support missions like this. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank everyone for their assistance and for caring so much.”
