  • help: K-9 Funding/grants?

    need resources...

    we'd like to get one going in the Muni dept I work for. Drug work more than a patrol dog...

    resources? links? Success stories?

    An officer at a nearby agency knew that his agency (municipality only 5000 people) would never spring for a K9 program. So, with the chief's OK, he solicited donations from local businesses and citizens. When he had accumulated enough money, he approached the chief with a deal -- he would use the donations to buy a dog and get the training, the dept. would let him have a take-home vehicle and modify it for use with the dog. The chief bit [Wink] .

    That was a few years ago. Last year, he went through the process again to get a new dog.

    Overall the program seems to be a success. The dog has helped on numerous occasions and even gets called out when the county K9 is not available. Plus, he does a great job of PR - taking to dog to the schools and community events. Not a bad idea, if he's going to be hitting people up for donations.

    PM me and I can probably put you in touch with the guy.
    Caution and worry never accomplished anything.

          Check with your local Lions Club, they have a good reputation for donating to LE K9 programs.
