Even though wars are considered the worst activity ever, some soldiers usually find a way to think about something different by adopting animals and spending time with them.

According to Bored Panda, several animals are abandoned in dangerous war zones and, during combat, many of them unfortunately die. Thankfully, several brave souls rescue them and even upload photos on social media showing their new friends.

One of the multiples images on the Internet portrayed Marine Sergeant Frank Praytor feeding an orphaned kitten. According to the description of the post, the mother of the little cat died during the war, so Praytor adopted it.

The best aspect of the black-and-white shot was that it showed the man feeding his new friend in a trench.

There is a private non-profit organization called the Afghan Stray Animal League that operates and supports a shelter and low-cost veterinary clinic for homeless, abandoned, sick, and injured small animals in Afghanistan.

It is located in a refurbished house in Kabul, the Afghan capital, which has a large population of neglected street dogs and cats.

Apart from that, there are several other organizations with a similar goal, including Nowzad, Puppy Rescue Mission, and Operation Baghdad Pups.
