Oli P started this petition to Department of Justice
The United States keeps sending our military bomb sniffing Dogs to the country of Jordan, where a Federal investigation revealed are so greatly starved and neglected, that many died, and those who don’t barely survive.
The federal investigation recommendation to the United States Department of Justice was to stop sending dogs until there was a sustainability plan put in place, but the Department of Justice has not taken action on this recommendation.
See additional information about the investigation Here.
Despite spending “millions of dollars” training and dispatching the dogs, State Department officials failed to ensure their health and welfare, said the report, which was launched after a hotline complaint about the dogs’ treatment.
According to the report, the State Department’s loose regulation and lack of concrete policies were a big factor in the dogs’ mistreatment.
The State Department couldn’t provide investigators detailed information for the dogs in other partner countries besides Jordan, and there often aren’t any written agreements with the countries outlining how to care for the dogs.
We are asking the United States Department Of Justice to:
Stop sending additional dogs to Jordan until policies, a plan and assurances are put into place to properly monitor and ensure the well-being of those military dogs.
Investigate and provide investigators detailed information about the dogs and their well-being in the other partner countries besides Jordan.
Let’s ensure the protection and care of the U.S. military dogs that work hard and risk their lives every day, serving our and our partner countries.
