SAN ANTONIO, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Universal K9, a recognized leader in training police narcotics and explosives dogs, has today announced an expansion to their highly successful Police Dog Grant Program. The expansion gives police departments the opportunity to add a dual-purpose narcotics or explosives patrol/tracking dog to their department at no cost whatsoever through a free monthly drawing.
Universal K9 has already garnered headlines with the inception of the company’s Police Dog Grant Program designed to help police departments offset the costs of adding a fully-trained drug or explosives dog to their department. Now, through a monthly drawing, the company intends to give one police department each month a fully trained, dual-purpose drug or explosives patrol/tracking dog – free of charge. That’s a savings of tens of thousands of dollars for the department.
When asked about the new addition to the company’s Police Dog Grant Program, Brad Croft replied, “Every police department should have a fully trained K9, but we certainly understand that cost can be an insurmountable hurdle for most departments. That’s why we initially instituted the Police Dog Grant Program, and the impetus behind our new expansion. Each dual-purpose K9 is fully trained through our industry-leading classes, and ready to become an integral part of a department.”
Each month, Universal K9 will hold a drawing for one free-dual purpose K9. Police departments simply need to have their entries in before the drawing date every month for their chance to win. Universal K9’s initiative is also receiving support from other industry leaders, including the offer of a free Active Shooter course with the dual-purpose grant dog drawing from Global Priority Security Training Facility, as well as a free Kevlar vest to protect the dog, from Kevlar For K9s.
