US animal shelter operators want to leave Afghanistan with their dogs. Some of the animals may have worked for American soldiers. The Pentagon absolves itself of any responsibility.
Enthusiasm about dogs at the airport AcceptThe Pentagon has denied reports of US military dogs being caged at the Afghan capital airport. The Pentagon said on Tuesday that America’s primary task was to evacuate American citizens, Afghan local workers and vulnerable Afghans. Also said: “So US military Hamid has not left any dogs in cages at Karzai International Airport, nor any (…) military service dogs. “These reports are false.
The backgrounds are pictures that have been circulating on the internet and show dogs at Kabul airport. Accusation: American soldiers left them behind when they retreated. The Pentagon now insists that the dogs were under the supervision of the animal welfare organization “Kabul Small Animal Rescue” – not under the US military. “Despite a complex and dangerous return mission, the US Armed Forces tries to support Kabul ‘Small Animal Rescue’ as much as possible,” it said upon request.
Money raised for cargo plane for animals
Since the militant Islamist Taliban came to power, the organization has tried to drive many dogs and cats out of the country. He last raised money for a cargo plane. When asked, he said that the dogs were actually under his care at the airport. They were the service dogs of military contract partners. The same rules would not apply to these dogs as military service dogs. This is a “terrible distinction”.
Animal welfare organization SPCA said Tuesday on behalf of Charlotte Maxwell-Jones, founder of “Kabul Small Animal Rescue,” that she had to leave the airport on August 30. It also said that most of the dogs in the organization were abandoned at the airport – which eventually turned them into stray dogs.
What happened to them then is not clear. The organization complains that earlier animals were not allowed to board the aircraft. The organization’s Facebook page recently said that everything would be done to save “dear friends”.
