Pen Farthing was a Royal Marine from England who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He became friends with a dog whom he named Nowzad, after a town in Afghanistan. He soon turned to helping dogs, saving dogs, and reuniting dogs with soldiers around the world, including two of Pen's own dogs - the dogs Nowzad and Tali.

In 2014, Pen Farthing was named CNN Hero of the Year for his work saving dogs lives in Afghanistan, and placing them in loving homes in Afghanistan and around the world.Pen used the CNN award to work on trap, vaccinate, and spay/neuter programs in Afghanistan. Diseases such as rabies continue to be serious problems.

Pen travels around the world and is based in the greater Kabul, Afghanistan area.
