I was getting ready to deploy and the home that was watching my 3 year old Dalmatian was no longer able to... I was given about a month to find a new place for him to stay....after doing a little research on google I found the Guardian Angels for Soldiers' pet website and submitted an application, with in a few days I recieved a call for a potential foster home and a few weeks later handed Jasper over. I just got back not very long ago and I could not have asked for a better home to watch Jasper he was so well taken care of and loved it melted my heart to see that their are people out there that care so much!!!
