Our Detection Dogs
We partner with K9 training programs and various shelters to provide shelter and rescue “pit bull” dogs to police and sheriff departments across the country as part of our Police Dog Grant program. Animal Farm Foundation covers the cost of training, as well as care and housing for the dogs during the 4-8 week training process. Police and sheriff departments receive the trained narcotics detection dogs at no cost.
These dogs are living proof that all dogs are individuals and a shelter dog can perform the same work as a purpose-bred dog.

“The best thing about having K9 Wilson is that he did not just benefit one community. He has brought several communities together because other agencies have contacted us to do searches for them as well, thus creating a partnership between our communities.”Officer Lucky Huff
