"The animals are not classified as military property, therefore they’re not authorized on the packing list," the anonymous soldier said. "You take home with you what you bring."
With the help of a New York animal rescue group, the unnamed soldier has made it his mission to infiltrate dangerous regions of the Middle East to rescue these forgotten animals and return them to their soldiers in the United States.

"There’s a risk of kidnapping – there’s a risk of everything over there. You don’t know who’s your friend and who isn’t," said the soldier, who revealed himself to be a 14-year special operations veteran with 20 pet rescue missions to his credit. "I had a gun held to my head while I was trying to get a dog."

These dangerous operations in Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Yemen cost between $3,000 and $4,000 each and are funded entirely by Guardians of Rescue, which under the direction of Robert Misseri began financially backing the missions in 2012.
