Don’t Deport Dogs Reportedly Starved and Forced to Live in Own Waste for Days

Target: Robert Redfield, Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Goal: Support amnesty for allegedly neglected dogs set to be deported and deprived of safe, caring homes.

For three harrowing days, 18 dogs reportedly suffered inside a Chicago airport warehouse, with one fatality resulting from this alleged neglect. Upon their rescue, the French bulldogs had reportedly gone for the duration of their time in the warehouse without any food or water. Urine, feces, and fleas apparently covered the cages in which these poor animals were crammed. One of the rescuers said of the conditions, “we couldn’t get the smell off us for days.” At least one dog tested positive for a serious illness, and the others likely would have contracted this virus as well if they had not been liberated. Now, just as these traumatized animals are recovering, their lives will once again be in upheaval and potential danger courtesy of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

The dogs arrived at the airport on a flight from Jordan that lasted several hours. Both the shipping company, Alliance Ground International, and the airline that transported the dogs, Royal Jordanian Airlines, have been accused of animal cruelty. Yet the very same airline that allegedly almost contributed to these dogs’ deaths will once again be responsible for their “care.” The CDC has given its full support to an effort to deport the survivors and send them back to Jordan, merely because their vaccination paperwork was not in order and because of the positive viral test result.

The group currently caring for the bulldogs wants to keep this miscarriage of justice from happening by seeking amnesty for the animals so they may eventually find loving homes in America. Sign the petition below to urge the CDC to reverse its heartless dictate and to take a more empathetic, life-saving approach.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Dr. Redfield.

The CDC is supposed to help save lives, not endanger them. Why, then, has this organization put its support behind an effort to place living beings back in the hands of a company accused of neglecting them and nearly ending their lives? The French bulldogs left in allegedly horrid conditions with no food or water at a Chicago O’Hare International Airport warehouse seemingly had their health and well-being put at risk through no fault of themselves. They should not be punished because of paperwork or because one of them contracted a disease from which he has now recovered.

The group that helped save these animals from a bleak fate, French Bulldog Rescue, has made the following plea: “we’re asking for amnesty for the dogs. They’ve been isolated and they’re healthy.” These animals deserve an opportunity to be socialized and to find caring foster homes, as the rescue group has promised. They do not deserve to be treated like disposable trash and returned to the custody of their reported abusers with the CDC’s blessing and stamp of approval.

Please do not inflict such inhumanity onto these innocent dogs. Do not deport them. Help give them a chance at a new, better life.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    CDC MUST SHOW COMPASSION FOR THESE HELPLESS FURBABIES ,,, PLEASE 🙏🏼 RESCUE THEM FROM HORRIBLE CONDITIONS ,,, ASAP!!

  6. These dogs need to be saved, stay where they are, and rehomed to loving, caring families. The fact these dogs have been left in a warehouse, stuck, starving, without water and covered with fleas is the most heinous and ridiculous thing that can happen to any living being. These dogs deserve so much better and shouldn’t be flown back to where they came from after this complete failure on behalf of the airline and employees to ensure these dogs were being properly taken cared of.

  7. cristina Jitcov says:

  8. THESE POOR SOULS ARE SO ABUSED –LOOK AT THE EYES APPEALING FOR LOVE AND HELP–PLEASE GIVE THESE PRECIOUS SOULS AMNESTY TO STAY IN THIS COUNTRY AND THEY WILL QUICKLY GET ADOPTED.

  9. Manuela Lopez says:

    CDC please don’t send them back to hell.
    If this where your children you would try to do anything to keep them safe. These are the future children for some awesome parents.

  10. So so fucking sad!!! Everyone should be ashamed!!!! Once again cruelty get over and over! Tired of all this shit around me!

  11. Oh my gosh, haven’t these poor dogs suffered enough? There are careless incompetents who are supposed to be caring for the dogs. They deserve better. Don’t deport them, it will cause much more suffering!!

  12. Kathleen I Nagy-DeRosa says:

    Please rethink your decision to send these innocent souls back to the very hell hole they were rescued from just because of a paper mistake. It’s utterly ridiculous. One puppy is already dead. Please don’t send the others to that same fate. It would be heartless to do that to them and they have surely suffered enough. Bulldogs have respiratory issues as it is and don’t need to sit in any warehouses or on long journeys and be neglected for a second time. No animal deserves that. These animals have been vetted and deserve to find loving homes. Do the right thing for them. You have the power to make that happen. Don’t add to their misery.

  13. Human beings need to exercise some decency–what justifies further cruelty to these animals. They are already the victims of him negligence and irresponsibility. Can’t we ever show any compassion for the poor creatures who suffer daily because of our own failings?

  14. Raynesha McGhee-Reed says:

    This Is Sooo Sad When Poor Dogs Starve & They Need 2 Be Fed & 2 serve water 2 drink,neglection is not good @ all.

  15. Animal abusers must have the death penalty implemented and nothing less.

  16. Anita Gowda says:

    What have the naive and helpless animals done to humans to suffer. As Animal lovers we must join Together and make sure the Law Increases more punishment to these Sadists who commit these cruel acts

  17. Someone there has to have a heart. These dogs do not deserve to be deported. It is not their fault that they were neglected and weren’t cared for. Don’t punish them for what humans have done to them. They deserve a good loving home. Please do not deport them they have been through enough!
