Going abroad to fight a war is an incredibly brave thing to do – and hard, you don’t know when (or if) you will return. You are away from home, living in a tent, and on guard 24/7. Anything you can do to find comfort is a blessing. In Iraq, Ollie was raised by soldiers, he just wandered in and was allowed to stay. Former Army Specialist Ken Wyrsch took care of him and the pair bonded.
Ollie was a friend to all the soldiers, he welcomed them back to camp after their missions, and improved morale. When Wyrsch’s tour ended, he couldn’t leave Ollie behind. He asked SPCA International for help raising money to find and bring Ollie to California to live with him. The video shows Wyrsch and Ollie being reunited!
