Petition to US Government to take accountability for the decision to abandon pets in Afghanistan


**Instead of making use of available spots on a plane for rescued animals to escape Kabul, Afghanistan, the Department of Defense made a "policy decision" to forcibly release them from their crates in the airport (around 130 dogs including working dogs, and US Citizens' dogs), into the middle of a war zone. US woman Charlotte Maxwell-Jones of Kabul Small Animal Rescue has stayed behind in attempts to rescue the pets that were left behind and is a HEROINE.
