Funds raised by Advancing Life Foundation donors will now be credited to training amazing police dogs in two different states. Police dogs are helping Operation Underground Railroad track down perpetrators of human trafficking and keep them from harming children.
Advancing Life’s favorite dog and sponsee, Banner the dog and his partner, police officer Kathy are already working hard at helping to keep the streets safe in Montgomery, Alabama.
Working with the Montgomery Sheriff’s department, Banner’s placement was funded through our partner O.U.R. who reached out when they needed the funds to complete his training. Advancing Life gladly donated the needed funds and as a result the community impact has been truly remarkable.
Banner recently aided in stopping a criminal who shot at his partner Kathy by chasing the perpetrator down and helping contain them until police backup could apprehend him. On the occasion of another incident, Banner found a child at a dangerous crime scene. Because he was originally trained and used as a service animal prior to his police work, he sat with and comforted the child, effectively keeping them safe until police could get them out of the area.
At the ASEA North American Envision Conference, associates raised and donated over $42,000 to fund the training of 2 more police dogs. One dog will be lovingly named ‘Alf’ as an acronym of Advancing Life Foundation and has been located in Pensacola, Florida to join the police force there.
We are so proud to help aid the fight against human trafficking.
