Protecting the beautiful wildlife that resides on the Galapagos Islands has been the sole mission of four brave Sea Shepherd canines for the past six years. These dogs have received top training from both the Ecuadorian police as well as the environmental protection police unit on the Galapagos. While on the job, these courageous canines helped to stop illegal trafficking of the island’s marine animals, a serious issue that has plagued island defenders for years. Using their well trained noses, Sea Shepherd canines sniff out smugglers and help law enforcement officers apprehend stocks of shark fins and sea cucumbers.

After years of loyal duty, these wildlife-sniffing veterans are hanging up their uniforms and looking forward to relaxing in a new home upon their return to Seattle this coming May. The dogs will be taken in by Lady’s Hope Dog Rescue and begin their process of finding a forever home. Coming straight off the job, it will take the right guardian to help these wonderful dogs adjust to home life.

If you live on the West Coast, ideally near Seattle, and are interested in fostering (pending full adoption) one of these four veterans, you can click here to download an application. Simply fill it out and e-mail it to Lady’s Hope: [email protected]!
