In Kabul, pets are also in turmoil. The Kabul Small Animal Rescue (KSAR) association is doing everything possible to save the lives of its protégés, despite the various difficulties encountered.

Around 100 dogs and cats in the care of Kabul Small Animal Rescue, a veterinary and rescue clinic in the Afghan capital, could not be evacuated from the locality controlled by the fundamentalist movement. Many chartered planes could not access Kabul airport, in particular.

On August 30, most of the KSAR dogs had to be released at the airport. Once rescued by the shelter, they found themselves homeless overnight, once again. “ They are inside the airport in an area used to house employees at the end of the flight line. We have not been able to confirm the number of dogs released, ”a member of the group told the New York Post .

Charlotte and her furry companions weren’t so lucky. To top it off, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is slowing down the rescue operation by suspending the transport of dogs from Afghanistan and more than 100 other countries.

Efforts to repatriate dogs and cats continue

The SPCAI said the dogs, cats and KSAR’s primary rescuer Charlotte are currently safe and efforts to repatriate this small world are continuing.

The main objective of the organization is to return to the airport as soon as the area is secure, to try to recover and rescue the animals left to their own devices. Rescuers also hope that cooperation with the Taliban will be possible, to carry out this intervention.

The SPCAI and the KSAR are not about to give up for their 4-legged friends. </p
