Justice with Judge Jeanine put a spotlight on injured marine Megan Leavey. Megan spent two tours in Iraq with her partner Sgt. Rex. Rex is a German shepherd trained to sniff out bombs. They completed over a hundred missions together searching for improvised explosive devices aka IEDs.
Their partnership ended when they were both seriously injured by one of the bombs. The pair were sent back to the states for treatment. Once they recovered, Megan went home but Rex was sent back to work at Camp Pendleton. Now that Rex has been retired Megan would like to adopt him. Bureaucratic red tape is delaying the process. Time is a factor because Rex could be put to sleep before the adoption can take place. Judge Jeanine asked her viewers to send an email requesting the military speed up the process of reuniting Megan and Rex.
I don’t understand the delays in something as simple as a dog adoption. While people drag their feet the dog is sitting in a kennel alone. However, that’s not much different than what often happens to our human veterans. Once their job is done, they are no longer a priority to most of our society.
I applaud the show for bringing this to our attention. I know Judge Jeanine is a animal lover and has fought for animals when she was a district attorney in New York. It’s great to see her passion remains and she will still use whatever platform she has to speak out for animals.
Readers please take a moment and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask them to please make the reunion between these two war hero’s a priority.
