Military K9 and Service Dog Rescue - Overworked, Mistreated, and Tortured

Help by supporting: Mission K9 Rescue

In 2021, an alleged animal cruelty incident occurred at a military base which involved an airman who was charged with five counts of cruelty at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota. At Schofield Barracks in Hawaii, soldiers are accused of using blow darts to shoot prairie dogs, at Minot, and at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada, mutilated cats have reportedly been seen.

At the time of the incident, Jim Michael Velez Diaz, a 21-year-old member of Airman 1st Class, was the accused. Despite not being a military member, then 19-year-old Katelynn Marie Mercier was also charged. The Ward County Sheriff's Office searched a home on base on May 26, 2021 after receiving reports of animal neglect, according to the Minot Daily News, which first covered the incident. Ryan Ostrum, the deputy deputy for patrol, discovered six other malnourished dogs inside along with two dead dogs. According to a sheriff's department affidavit, the house was "in disarray with garbage, dried animal urine, and animal feces all around the home."

Some of the worse culprits of inhumane treatment to service dogs and animals in general are the Jordanian military and middle eastern culture where dogs are regularly mistreated. Death in some cases is the best alternative to these poor animals in some cases. 

Military and K9 Service Dogs have played a vital role in maintaining peace and security, both domestically and internationally. These specially trained dogs are used for a variety of tasks, including detection of bombs and drugs, search and rescue, and tracking.

Statistics show that military and K9 service dogs have saved countless lives in combat and other dangerous situations. In recent years, the use of these dogs has increased dramatically, with many military units now relying on them as a crucial part of their operations. According to the Department of Defense, there are approximately 2,500 military working dogs currently in service, with the majority of these dogs being deployed to the Middle East.

Another important statistic regarding military and K9 service dogs is their ability to quickly locate and rescue people in search and rescue operations. These dogs are often the first responders in natural disasters, and they are able to quickly locate and rescue survivors who may otherwise be trapped. In many cases, these dogs have been able to save lives by locating survivors who were trapped in rubble or other hazardous conditions.

Finally, it is worth noting that military and K9 service dogs are often considered heroes in their own right. These dogs have been awarded numerous medals and honors for their bravery and service, and they are often remembered as true heroes who have made a significant impact in the lives of those they serve.

So why do some servicemen and handlers neglect, beat, torture, and starve these heroes?
