Retired PDEA dogs up for adoption

After serving for several years as narcotics detection dogs for the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, 16 dogs of different breeds are now retired and up for adoption.

PDEA director general Aaron Aquino said the retired dogs served for several years in anti-illegal drug operations in jail facilities, search and seizure, interdiction and checkpoints in airports, seaports, and transportation terminals across the country.

“The PDEA K9 Unit facility is not an ideal place for fostering these heroic dogs, which is why they have been made available for adoption so that they can have a stress-free environment and loving family that can give them care and attention,” Aquino said.

PDEA retired 18 narcotics detection dogs consisting of 14 Belgian Malinois, two Jack Russell Terriers, one German Shepherd, and one Labrador.

Only 16 of these dogs have been put up for adoption because two of the Belgian Malinois are not fit for adoption for their aggressive behavior. The two will be taken care of at the PDEA K9 facility.

Seven of the dogs have been allotted to PDEA personnel who have expressed their desire to adopt the animals, and the remaining nine will be open for adoption.

For inquiries, kindly contact IA III Bernardo S. Velasquez, Chief, K-9 Unit at 0917-1423460.

Applicants for the adoption of the dogs will undergo screening and interview from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the PDEA K9 Unit facility in Sitio Lambakin, Barangay Sto. Cristo, City of San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan.
