HAMILTON, NJ -- A volunteer group that helps bring dogs from Afghanistan to safety in America is asking for the public's help locating a dog who is lost in Hamilton.
On Thursday, April 15, the Kabul Small Animal Rescue received two dogs -- Apollo and Wazira (Wazzy) -- at Dulles International Airport in Virginia to transport them to their forever homes in Maine. The rescue team stopped at the Woodrow Wilson Service Center while traveling through Hamilton on Friday to let the dogs out for a break.
That's when Wazzy slipped her collar and ran away. The group began searching for him Friday night with Wazzy's best friend, Apollo, who is a bit skittish.
Moore pleaded for the public's help finding her saying "She is SO sweet...she has had a rough life...and has earned safety. Please, please help us find her."
Anyone with information can contact Moore at (910) 467-7907. A reward for her return may be offered.
A veterinary clinic and nonprofit organization, the Kabul Small Animal Rescue helps provide safe and healthy boarding options for their rescue partners, who help international adoptions of Afghan cats and dogs.
