Hello  everybody I am working for a very small department ( 2 full time officers and 4 part time officer ) i am trying to find grants to get a k-9 trained. So far the ones i have found that are open are not responding . One is this normal and two can anybody give me any other places to look for these kind of grants?


Thanks  Officer Rob Smith Lyndon PD

Have you contacted Homeland Security? They were doing grants for Patrol / Bomb Dogs. Other than that call some of the K-9 Training facilitys they may be able to help. Just a thought.   I have a partner in a near by city that raised money from hotdog sales in front of local stores. He said it sucked having to do that but he got a great K-9 for his effort.

Homeland security is an option. Generally though, they are funding explosives detectors. You might also check with the Ben Rothlisberger (spelling may be wrong, but the QB for the Steelers) Foundation. They provide grants for police service dogs.

what state u in? Illinois has grants thru the Illinois criminal justice authority.


when we started our dog program we went to the community. Some corporations will kick money, some vets will offer free vet care, some stores will offer free dog food. You have to be imaginative and look deeply and there are resources out there. I had thought NAPWDA was offerning some things and if you have other dog teams in your area look them up and see what they are doing. Sometimes you can do a lot with regional training initiatives.

I found this website to have a lot of good information.  I'm not sure if will help you a lot as far as grants, but I remember it had a few articles on helping a  department start a canine program.


If you dig thru it you might find something worth while...

Hey Gang,


I just evaluated a dog last week. He is an intact male Mal, about 4.5 years old. Was trained in patrol and dope but the owner never got to use him. Very nice dog, I will clean out the cob webs on his brain and he should be ready for a small organization that needs a dog for not a lot of money. If interested, please refer any questions to me   buscak9@aol.com

I work for a company called Aftermath Inc, and I just may be able to help you out.


Aftermath is the nations leader in crime scene clean up. www.aftermathinc.com/ .


We host 2 K-9 raffles every year, and basically, you can register at www.aftermathinc-k9raffle.com/, encourage as many officers from yor department to register, and the winning department will receive $8,000 towards a new dog and/or training.


 


Just follow the links above, and good luck. I really hope this helps you.
