Plea For Clemency

Hi Everypup,

I have a small favour to ask you all. I know it is all I seem to do at the moment but it really will just take a moment of your time.
Yesterday Gus, Louie and Callie posted a link to an article about a puppy called Ratchet who was due to be rescued from Iraq and brought to the US to be reunited with the servicewoman who had befriended and cared for him whilst serving there.Sadly her commanding officers seized Ratchet on his way to the Airport and there is a very real threat that he will be killed.
You can read the whole story HERE

I forwarded the link to Nowzad and today they have sent me the link for an online petition to appeal for clemency for Ratchet. You can sign the petition HERE
PLEASE SIGN AND FORWARD THE PETITION LINK TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE.

Thank you,

Ben

Thanks for the information, Ben. We posted links. It would be a terrible thing for this dog to not make it out of Iraq and/or for Gwen to be court marshaled over it.

Oh, no! I will get my human to go there right away and sign. This is not good.
