Police Dog Adoption

We Are a Police Donation Website

Remembering Brian K serves as a website for police donations, including the need for police dog adoption. If you have lost a dog in the line of fire or simply need to adopt a police dog for your precinct, we provide canines through donations. Many generous and giving people give to this great cause, helping police departments add a wonderful and trained police dog.

Every year, it is our goal to raise enough money to purchase police dogs for agencies that have recently lost a dog in the line of duty. Each year, hundreds of police dogs are injured or killed in the line of duty. Leaving the agency or precinct down a canine. And of course, there are many dogs that have to retire either from old age or illness. So there is always a need for a police dog somewhere. But the training of police dogs is costly and time-consuming, which means the number of dogs ready to fill these important roles is not that many. That leaves K9 handlers without a partner and in dire need of a replacement, which is where we come in with the adoption of a police dog for these situations.

Your donation, regardless of size, helps us keep Brian’s spirit of service alive. Click below to Donate.

Importance of Police Dog Adoption

Police dogs play an important role in law enforcement and help with all sorts of tasks on a daily basis. That is why our adoption donation is so important to us. We want to give back to the community and help local law enforcement by providing them with a trained police dog they can adopt. But these dogs must be a special type of dog to work in a law enforcement environment. Oftentimes, these dogs come from generations of dogs that are specifically bred to perform these complicated and sometimes dangerous tasks. So not all dogs can do it. And all dogs that do it require extensive training. Which is why only a few specific breeds are capable of performing these duties.

Here are some popular breeds for police dogs:

  • German Shepherds
  • Bloodhounds
  • Labrador Retrievers
  • Belgian Malinois
  • Dutch Shepherds

These breeds of dogs are renowned for their incredible work ethic, their desire to cooperate with their handlers, and their tenacity in fighting criminals (should that situation arise). Sometime a police dog is a single-purpose police dog, which means they only need to perform one task. Others can be dual-purpose, which means their training opens them up to perform a variety of different tasks. With our non-profit organization, we ensure that each police dog adoption is ready for work in the line of duty.

Police Dog Adoption Training

When it comes to polices dogs and their training, they are greatly utilized for 3 certain aspects: search and rescue, apprehension, and detection. Let's take a deeper look into these aspects and why they are vital skills for any police dog up for adoption.


The apprehension of suspects is the most popular discipline for police dogs. When properly trained, police dogs will bite dangerous suspects and hold them hostage for backup to arrive. In a lot of instances, the police dog is the first to put their life on the line in a dangerous situation and have the inclination to protect their human partners. Herding breeds make the best apprehension police dogs, since they have both the physical strength to attack and the elevated intelligence needed to listen to their partner. German shepherds and Dutch Shepherds are two of the more common types of police dogs you will find. With our police dog adoption policies in place, the dogs going into service will be fully trained and make for a wonderful partner.


Dogs have an amazing sense of smell and use this ability to the advantage of the police force as they are able to detect things through this canine ability. Police dogs are trained to detect various drugs, explosives, accelerants, and other crime scene evidence. Dogs can perform these tasks anywhere, which includes most importantly airports and border entries where the search for illegal drugs and explosives is crucial. Large events, like sporting events and concerts, also employ police dogs to help with the large crowd. When you adopt our police dogs, they are fully trained and ready for detection.

Search and Rescue

Police work often entails searching for lost victims. Whether it is someone who has been kidnapped or a missing person, police dogs can aid in the search and rescue. These dogs can be trained to find living victims and the remains of deceased humans. Police dogs can expertly search through rubble after a disaster and help find out where people are trapped. They are also able to cover miles of forest in the effort of searching for a lost hiker. Police dogs can even help locate drowned victims.

Their ability to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time is instrumental in the saving of lives. Human searchers play an important role that is of course irreplaceable, but with the help of search and rescue police dogs the police force is able to get the job done more effectively. The police dogs up for adoption are fully trained in the arts of search and rescue.
