Kuwait's only animal shelter burned down in a March fire caused by an electrical surge. Forty animals perished, but 60 dogs survived. Forty of the survivors found foster homes in Kuwait, but 20 are now here in the United States at the Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL). Who knew it, but international animal rescues do happen. The Animal Friends League of Kuwait contacted Humane Society International, and now the dogs are in the USA. All are healthy, and several are now ready for adoption, according to a brief in the Washington Post yesterday. Eight are apparently "desert dogs" indigenous to Kuwait that have short coats and big ears.

Anyone want to give a Kuwaiti dog a home?

(Yes, this post doesn’t relate to Secretary Clinton, but I couldn’t resist putting it up.)
