During your "first date" with your new companion you'll be involved in training, feeding, grooming, health-care, or socialization. In addition, you'll likely "go back to their place" and assist in animal quarters' maintenance and grounds management.

This is a perfect way to pal around with a pig, hang with a horse, talk turkey with (what else) a turkey, or gab with a goat! You'll not find a more-interactive animal volunteering experience anywhere on the First Coast.

City of Tampa Search & Rescue K-9's and Handlers

306 E Jackson Street - Tampa, Florida 33602
The Tampa Police Department "employs" 22 police K-9's from six breeds trained in criminal captures, search and rescue, narcotic searches and bomb detection. The dogs go through an initial training program and are recertified each year through the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

In fact, the K-9's live with their human partners and when they retire, they spend their golden years relaxing with their handler. 

The Tampa Police Departments K-9 Unit is dedicated to the apprehension of criminal suspects. Its handler and dog team search capabilities are a valuable resource to street officers and to the community to which they serve.

Despite this, they are not suffering yet. They still have some life left to live and to enjoy, and that makes them candidates for hospice.
