The dogs were from a mercenary group that left earlier. The group was working with the UK. They all ended up with an animal rescue who was trying to get them ent here. There’s a bunch of back and forth between different groups with some being called scammers. Beyond the fact that the US controlled the airport, it had nothing to do with US. The dogs were released because they were at the airport but weren’t being taken. They have a better shot at surviving that way than sitting there in kennels. The head of the rescue was an American woman. She refused flight back because she didn’t want to leave a disabled puppy behind.

Why couldn’t we throw a few dog crates into a plane and bring them back?  We may not have owned them but they should have been taken.  So sad the rescue groups have to fight ami g themselves. I hope those dogs find homes but thst seems unlikely given the danger and chaos.  

Are we also positive the story being told us is true?

That wasn’t a few crates and it’s not as simple as just loading them. If you want someone to be mad at, then be mad at the people that left them. It’s not a new phenomenon.

If it was MWD, you’d have heard from the handlers

I’m angry with everyone. Even the rescue groups were fighting among themselves.

Yes, that would happen.

There’s a SPCA statement that talks about the current situation.

I found it. It’s a fundraising statement.

Both the Humane society and SPCA started the rumors.
