Sector K9 Shelter Dog Training Program

Feb. 10, 2020

A weapons and drug detection dog is an invaluable resource for a police department or school. Many smaller police departments and schools can not afford one in their budgets. It costs over $20,000 for a purebred, purpose-bred detection dog. Through the Animal Farm Foundation Detection Dog Grant Program, these dogs are placed for free within police departments and schools across the country.

The K9 detection dog teams are trained by Sector K9 in Midlothian, TX.  Through a rigorous selection process, Sector K9 works with various animal shelters across the country to select dogs who have the willingness and focus to be a police detection K9. Animal Farm Foundation sponsors the 4-8 week training and care for the dogs while they and their police officer partners are expertly trained at Sector K9. The dogs learn to detect narcotics, opiates, and guns, with some learning special skills in tracking. This grant saves thousands of taxpayer dollars and provides a positive solution to some of our country’s toughest problems and helps to build more connected communities.
