Bandit and Ruger are both rescues that were found during the travels of USAF Master Sergeant Michael, who has loved and looked after them for years. When Michael’s last tour before retirement took him to Qatar, he could not find anyone to care for his two loving boys but he refused to put them in a kennel or shelter to face an uncertain fate. Michael found PACT and drove 17 hours in a rain storm to place his beloved dogs with the Keefer family, who have a 45-acre farm and dog of their own that would keep Mike’s boys entertained. The Keefers cared for Bandit and Ruger for six months, sending Michael regular picture and email updates. He was finally able to return to pick up his two best friends and take them home. Huge smiles and wagging tails filled the room, as Michael hugged his boys for the first time in six months and promised he would never have to leave them again.
