The amount of people looking to adopt retired American military dogs is surging after news spread this week that a military dog played a key role in the special forces operation to take out ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

President Trump tweeted a photo of the Belgian Malinois dog, Conan, on Monday, which added to the already rising interest in applications to adopt military dogs, according to at least one retired military dog adoption advocacy group.

“The military dogs are really getting a lot of recognition right now, which they should,” President of U.S. War Dogs Association Ron Aiello told Yahoo Finance’s YFi PM. “Back when we had taken out Bin Laden, everyone wanted to adopt a Belgian Malinois [dog] and the same thing is happening now.”

Aiello, a former dog handler for the Marine Corps during the Vietnam War, launched his organization to help drive advocacy for retired military dogs that had decades ago been euthanized after service. Now, his organization helps heal and line up adoption opportunities for America’s retired military dogs, which can cost the U.S. around $50,000 to procure, train, and ship to the field. More

A forever home isn’t too much to ask for a dog who served his country. These dogs are well taken care of with a long line of people who want them. They all deserve a good life and a loving forever home after serving our country.
