K9 Detection Dog Grant
The K9 detection dog teams trained by our grantee Sector K9* work within communities to end the drug crisis, keep schools and kids safe, and build more connected communities.
The dogs detect guns and drugs. Some are also trained to track missing people.
Sector K9 works with various animal shelters to select dogs who have the drive and dedication to be a police detection K9. We sponsor the training and care for the dogs while they and their police officer partners are expertly trained in Texas. This grant saves thousands of taxpayer dollars and provides a positive solution to some of our country’s toughest problems.

It costs police departments over $20,000 for a purebred, purpose-bred dog who can match K9 Kiah’s detection skills. Animal Farm Foundation’s grant provides departments with K9s at no cost to serve communities and save lives.
