Robin R. Ganzert, President and CEO of the American Humane Association (AHA) reports that the U.S. Congress has passed the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act. This bill guarantees that all of America’s heroic military working dogs will be returned to the U.S. when retired.
The bill also states that their human handlers and their families to whom these dogs mean the world, will be given first choice to adopt.
The bill was passed due to the untiring efforts of you , the people, who wrote letters urging members of Congress to pass it.
The AHA in the past year, has helped fund the transportation back to the U.S. and their former handlers, of 21 K-9 Battle Buddies. It should be noted that the cost of bringing them home is quite high.
Now the AHA is strongly urging the U.S. President to sign the bill.
