San Antonio, Texas, January 25, 2018 – Universal K9, an organization with a reputation for both high-quality K9 training and compassionate outreach, has announced the debut of a Go Fund Me fundraising campaign. The goal is to rescue dogs that would not usually be adopted, those with energy and high prey drive, train them and place them with US law enforcement departments in need.
“We need the support of dog lovers across the country,” explained Brad Croft, founder and professional trainer at Universal K9. “Most people think only purebred dogs like German shepherds can be trained for law enforcement. That’s not accurate. Really, almost any dog has the potential to be trained and to serve their community, including maligned breeds like the pit bull.”
To date, Universal K9 has been very successful with their program, training between 20 and 40 dogs per month, and placing them with law enforcement agencies across the US. However, there are still departments waiting, and every day, thousands of dogs are needlessly euthanized, simply because no one would adopt them. Universal K9 seeks to increase their output to 120 dogs trained and rehomed with law enforcement departments per six weeks.
In addition, the organization seeks funding to support ending breed-specific legislation permanently, and to educate people that “dogs are dogs, and aggression is a byproduct of poor handling”.
Contributions will go to support the purchase of new training facilities in several states, renovating existing facilities, and getting more dogs out of shelters across the country and serving US communities. The program will have a ripple effect, saving taxpayers money, and creating safer, happier communities while saving dogs from destruction.
