The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency on Friday handed over 16 retired narcotics detection dogs to their adopters at the PDEA K9 Unit facility in Sitio Lambakin, Barangay Sto. Cristo, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.

PDEA director general Aaron N. Aquino said there were 33 applicants for adoption who had undergone screening and interview to determine their capacity to adopt – a stringent requirement set in the standard operating procedures of the PDEA K9 Unit.

He said the PDEA retired 18 NDDs consisting of 14 Belgian Malinois, two Jack Russell Terriers, one German Shepherd, and one Labrador but only 13 K9s were adopted, as the two Belgian Malinois were not fit for adoption for their aggressive behavior, while one of the dogs had no adopters because of health condition, which required maintenance medication.

Aquino said the other two had adopters who showed interest but did not have the financial capability to maintain the animals. The two dogs left in PDEA’s care will stay at the K9 facility.

The six NDDs were handed over to PDEA personnel who had expressed their desire to adopt, and the other eight dogs to individuals who had passed the screening and interview conducted on May 3.

These heroic K9s served in anti-illegal drug operations of PDEA in jail facilities, search and seizure, interdiction and checkpoints in airports, seaports, and transport terminals nationwide.

Aquino said the PDEA K9 Unit facility was not an ideal place for fostering these dogs, which was why they were made available for adoption, so they could live the remainder of their years in a stress-free and loving environment.

“A periodic monitoring of K9s with their adopters will be conducted to ensure their welfare,” Aquino said.
