Marine Corps has about 50 - single purpose, explosive detection dogs that are up for adoption. This number will increase as we look to discontinue the IDD program. Please make contact with your civilian peers or other LE entities and see if they would like one (or more).
Please contact Mr. Rich Landgrebe (CC'd and info below) and he will see through the successful adoption.
The process is relatively easy; once a department states that they want a dog, the only thing that will take any time is to have the Ft Bragg vet do a final exam and copy the medical records for the dept. This normally takes 1-2 days. There is no cost to adopt an IDD or transfer to a Law Enforcement Agency except for the transportation from where the IDD is kenneled to the adopter's location.
