****NOTICE**** We have been receiving hundreds of phone calls regarding MWD's being left in Afghanistan. Please be advised, this is NOT what is happening. These are a mixture of private contractor dogs and civilian pets. Although this is sad, they are not MWD's. Saveavet rescues MWD's and Law Enforcement K9's only that are deemed unsuitable for adoption via their agency due to liability. The Military has not left a K9 overseas since the Robby Law has come into effect unless, it is for humane or security reasons such as (terminal cancer, injuries which would be exacerbated during transport, contagious diseases not currently is the USA, etc). Currently there are no regulations that require contractor companies to bring their dogs home, to adopt them out or retirement. Some contractor companies go above and beyond when it comes to their K9's final retirement and some do not. These contracts are appointed through your congressional members and senators bills and laws. Please contact them to help change these laws requiring non-military contractor dogs to be brought home at end of service. Again, although this is sad, this is not the Saveavet Mission. Thank you for your continued support.
