Congress: Stop Euthanizing Military Dogs. Allow Adoption by Soldiers and Citizens.

Messages Sent So Far
After serving the United States in combat zones, military dogs should be honored, not euthanized. Allowing them to be adopted upon retirement by a loving caretaker honors these dogs that have worked alongside American soldiers defending the United States.

Please pass the bill requiring that the military ship heroic dogs home and ease potential veterinarian costs for adopting families.

If roadside bombs and other hazards of war don't kill military dogs, senseless government regulations and red tape might. The United States is breeding 100 puppies a year to train for bomb sniffing and other soldierly duties, but many will not make it back to happy homes because an obscure federal law classifies them as "equipment" rather than personnel -- and makes adopting them a financial and bureaucratic nightmare. A bill to require that the military ship the heroic dogs home and ease potential veterinarian costs for adopting families is currently bogged down in Congress, as dogs continue to be euthanized.

This cruelty to animals is unwarranted, unthinkable, and absolutely unnecessary. Please save these heroic animal soldiers.
