Contract working dogs left behind in Kabul after Biden's Afghanistan withdrawal

The animal rights group demanded members of Congress take action and "classify contract working dogs on the same level as military working dogs," or it would become "a condemnation of us all."

Update: Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby disputes that photos circulating online represented stranded "military working dogs" in cages at the Kabul airport, but instead were animals "under the care of Kabul Small Animal Rescue."

Journalist Jack Posobiec responded to Kirby's clarification:

Approximately 130 dogs were left behind in Kabul according to the SPCA.

250 Americans remain stranded behind enemy lines.

Original story follows:

An animal rights activist group released a scathing statement after finding out the United States left contracted service dogs behind at the Kabul, Afghanistan airport, condemned the government for sentencing the dogs to "death."

The United States Military departed Afghanistan on Monday and concluded the nearly 20 year long military presence in the country after the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

After discovering the service dogs were left behind, American Humane released a statement and said, "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."

"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," the statement read. "In order to prevent this tragedy from occurring, these K-9's should be loaded into whatever cargo space remains and flown to safety."

The animal rights group demanded members of congress take action and "classify contract working dogs on the same level as military working dogs," or it would become "a condemnation of us all."
