Rachet Released Too Late

Ratchet was finally cleared for release today ..... but too late to make the rescue plane.

SPCA International plans to make another emergency return trip to rescue Ratchet as soon as Sunday.

Everything that can be done is being done for this dog. Cross your paws, wag your tails, and/or purr your heart out that he will be kept safe until he can be rescued from our own military in Iraq.

  7. Jan,

    THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for keeping us up to date on this. We so prayed he would make that plane, but we realised earlier today that he probably hadn't when we couldn't find any news. Thank you so much for this latest update, maybe Mum will sleep tonight! The fact he has got clearance is great, lets just hope he is kept safe until they can get him out of there!
    We are keeping all paws and digits crossed in this house that they get back in time for Ratchet.

    uh-oh.. Mum is leaking again!

    Thanks again all at Jans Funny Farm.. you are great!!

    Ben and a tearful but partially relieved Mum!

  8. Yay, come on Rachet.
    We's all signed a pet-it-shun on this via Care2. Glad to see you are following it and keeping us posted.

  9. We have our paws crossed and are purring our hearts out that Ratchet makes it out Sunday.

    If we could have one wish it would be that every cat and dog could have a loving home.

  10. **insert HBO words** Can't believe how close Ratchet was to coming home!! It's great that he's got his clearance, one major hurdle down.. now let's hope he gets home to where he belongs asap.

  11. Oh dear...
    He'll make it Sunday or sooner, we just know it!

  12. We are purring that Ratchet gets home safely.

    Hugs & Purrs,
    Sammy, Festus & Emma

    Thank you stopping by to read about the mystery toilet guest.

    Don't forget to stop by and read...
    The mystery toilet guest!...Part Two

  21. Looking for Crystal, she got me good today!!!!!

  22. I am so glad he is going to make it. Its sad this would not happen without the animal community. I can not imagine being off in a useless war, away from my family, alone, watching people die and the only thing keeping me going is a homeless dog I had taken in. How could you ever survive with the one who has survived with you?? Its going to be a happy ending when Ratchet gets home..


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
