SAPS appeals for dog donations

south_african_police_dogs.jpgPORT ELIZABETH -- South African Police Service (SAPS) is appealing to the public to donate suitable dogs to be trained for security duties during the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which the African country will host.

South Africa is leaving no stone unturned in its quest to ensure tight
security during the first FIFA World Cup in Africa, which will run from
June 11-July 11 next year.

Inspector Steve Leslie of East London police dog unit said the law
enforcement agency was appealing to the public to get involved because
there was a shortage of canine crime fighters.

SAPS would use the donated dogs for patrols, drugs and explosives sniffing and fire detection services among other duties.

We would appreciate it if the public could assist us. There is a call
centre where a donor can call and arrangements will be made to test the
dog's suitability. Then, if everything is fine, a contract will be
signed, said Leslie.

The dogs will be taken to the SAPS veterinary services, where they will
be examined, inoculated and prepared fur duties at the tournament.
