ALL AMERICAN SERVICE DOGS TO BE EVACUATED FROM AFGHANISTAN
There has been confusion about the status of American working dogs in the Kabul Airport. All American military service dogs have been evacuated with our troops. Some contractor service dogs are scheduled to depart Kabul on Wednesday morning and are being taken care of there until then.
Not a single one of these dogs will be left to the Taliban. The contractor service dogs are currently being cared for by volunteers and all 51 of them will be on a chartered flight Wednesday morning, according to Veterans Sheepdogs of America which is coordinating their repatriation with help from the US State Department.
They will fly to Germany, where they will quarantine for 30 days before returning to the USA.
Once in the USA, Veterans Sheepdogs of America will use its contacts to place the dogs with American police departments in need of service dogs.
No American service dog will be abandoned in Afghanistan after fighting for our country. Every single one of them will be coming home soon to continue serving in some capacity with our brave men and women in uniform.
Veterans Sheepdogs of America has asked to let people know they are working diligently on getting the contractor dogs out of Kabul. They have asked that people stop sharing false info about the dogs being abandoned.
