Biden didn’t just leave Americans and Afghan allies behind. The Defense Department reportedly released a bunch of service dogs they were keeping into the streets of Kabul to fend for themselves.
🚨BREAKING! The U.S. Department of Defense just released all of @KSAnimalRescue’s dogs on the streets of #Kabul to fend for themselves. There will be renewed rescue efforts starting on or about September 2nd. 🙏💞🐕 #OperationHercules

The American Humane society also suggested the same, if not worse:
The American government is pulling out of #Kabul and leaving behind brave U.S. military contract working dogs to be tortured and killed at the hand of our enemies. We stand ready to bring them home! Read our CEO @RobinGanzert's full statement: https://t.co/IKhBkm4B7a pic.twitter.com/ItFlthDTAi

Below is their full statement:
“I am devastated by reports that the American government is pulling out of Kabul and leaving behind brave U.S. military contract working dogs to be tortured and killed at the hand of our enemies. These brave dogs do the same dangerous, lifesaving work as our military working dogs, and deserved a far better fate than the one to which they have been condemned.
This senseless fate is made all the more tragic, as American Humane stands ready to not only help transport these contract K-9 soldiers to U.S. soil but also to provide for their lifetime medical care.
American Humane has worked hand in hand with the military for more than 100 years to rescue military animals. In fact, our famed rescue program began on the bloody battlefields of WWI Europe, at the request of the U.S. Secretary of War. Since that time, American Humane served as a pioneer in the development of animal therapy for returning veterans, and today brings home retired military working dogs and pairs veterans with life-saving service dogs.
As the country’s first national humane organization and largest certifier of animal welfare in the world, it sickens us to sit idly by and watch these brave dogs who valiantly served our country be put to death or worse.
In order to prevent this tragedy from occurring, these K-9’s should be loaded into whatever cargo space remains and flown to safety.
Irrespective of the outcome, this gross oversight of justice must be stopped from happening again, as it did in Vietnam too. To that end, we call on Congress to take action to classify contract working dogs on the same level as military working dogs. Failure to do anything less, is a failure of humanity and a condemnation of us all.”
This is another reason why we should have stayed in Kabul until we got everyone out, including the pups. This is all on Biden.
