I love poor little innocent pets as much as anyone but to risk more American lives to save animals doesn't make sense.

The next criticism about Biden's Afghanistan withdrawal will be that the US didn't save the camels that US soldiers used.

What risk?

My rescue has been working closely with this and the British rescue trying to get the animals and humans out. The Taliban hates animals. Those poor being are not safe there. They are accepting donations for anyone who wants to help.

You are correct. She won't leave her rescues nor her staff behind.

Will you be blaming President Biden for her staying?

I've had pets all my life. The majority have lived to old ages. I have however dealt with some of their mortalities on an economic basis. I'm not going to spend thousands of dollars on an uncertain future for my pet when a shot can resolve the issue. When you buy a pet, you also buy a tragedy.

Of course I cried when I made those decisions. But there are thousands of animals that could use someone to love right now.

I don't see how it would have been much of a risk. I mean, they had the animals...they had cages. Instead of hauling them on board an airplane, they released the animals to fend for themselves.

I think the evacuation was more concerned with saving space for human rescue, thus the crammed airplanes. Can you imagine the faces of the people trying to get on board while they see dogs being placed on before them? The focus was to get as many people out as possible first, which even that didn't completely succeed. If they successfully reopen the Kabul Airport, maybe then they can retrieve the pets.
