FREEDOM, NOT DEATH, FOR MILITARY DOGS

 

Retirement for most Military Dogs means "Put To Sleep" in whatever country they are serving.  The Military Dog Retirement Act passed Congress in 2015 but the President did not sign it. Below is YOUR legislator’s contact information and how to save our war dogs!

 

Military dogs suffer the same blazing sun, war wounds, and death as our brave soldiers.TheDogPlace.org has waged a 9-year campaign against killing our war dogs. Incredibly, military working dogs are usually “terminated” (killed) or “left for adoption in the country where their service ends.”  What are the odds of being adopted in war-torn third world countries? 

 

In 2014 the Max movie moved millions and we were encouraged, sure that the Military Dog Retirement Act would finally pass.  In 2015, we achieved inclusion of the Military Dog Retirement Act in the National Defense Authorization Bill but it was to no avail.

 

With a new President and Congress in 2017, we need your input and VOTE (below) to save the lives of war dogs!

 

ii S. 1498, Military Dog Retirement Act was introduced June 3, 2015.  The Senate Bill is “to support veterans and military dog handlers by ensuring that military working dogs come home to the United States after they have been relieved from their service in combat roles overseas.” 

 

ii H.R. 2742, the Military Dog Retirement Act introduced in the House on June 11, 2015 "to require that military working dogs be retired in the United States, and for other purposes ..." 

 

Mine Detection Dog (MDD) searches suspected mine field in AfghanistanNovember 23, 2015 the Military Dog Retirement Act was referred to the Subcommittee on Readiness to be acted upon by House Armed ServicesIt required the Department of Defense to arrange and pay for transportation of trained military dogs back to the United States when their service abroad has been deemed no longer necessary, including because of injury.  The Military Dog Retirement Act passed but was never signed by President Obama.

 

FYI: most military dogs are not trained to be aggressive. Most are MDD (Mine Detection Dogs).  Today "War Dogs" are saving lives in Afghanistan and Iraq, especially children who trip the still-intact mines while searching for souvenirs.

 

Last December the American Humane.org blasted out press releases stating that the bill to bring war dogs home had passed.  Even the distinguished Huffington Post fell for it.  Unfortunately IT WAS NOT TRUE and all of those links to the AHA currently return a 404 "page not found" message.

 

With your help and a new President and Congress, TheDogPlace.org can make this happen in 2017.
