Military Working Dogs in Pakistan need help

Link: http://www.k9soldiers.org/

Quote:
Quote:These drug-sniffing dogs are part of a Pakistan counter narcotics program in Karachi developed with the assistance of the United States.
The Government of Pakistan is discontinuing the program and requests
support from the members of the US military to relocate and adopt the
dogs.

Pakistan does not have the support structures or culture for pet
adoption as does the United States. If resources to have the dogs
relocated to the United States are not found soon, they will be
euthanized. The United States government cannot fund the
transportation of the dogs since they are part of a Pakistan working
dog program. Enthusiastic volunteers from the US Embassy in Pakistan are giving their time to coordinate care and documentation to the United States for K9 Soldiers, Inc, a 501c3.

Re: Military Working Dogs in Pakistan need help

$2000 per dog seems very expensive just for transport (unless it covers a bunch of pre-transport vet care & documentation) - I'm surprised they aren't finding some flight assistance from the airlines.

It really isn't. I was doing some checking transporting a dog from Europe. I got a price of 1,200 EUROS! ($1759 today) That included transport 2 hours from house to airport and all the necessary crate and documentation and stuff. The airline cargo fee was $350 Euros. It's much cheaper to sent to Europe than from Europe.

That photo is heartbreaking.

Geez, why can't our government just put some crates on the planes that must fly back and forth carrying troups?
