Raise a Hero

The Canine Performance Sciences (CPS) program in Auburn’s College of Veterinary Medicine advances and innovates canine detection technology to increase the capabilities of detection dogs worldwide.

This Tiger Giving Day, we are raising funds to "Help Raise a Hero." Raising a hero is a costly endeavor. 

While they are in our program, our puppies eat more than 23,000 pounds of food. The cost to raise one puppy is more than $18,000.

Your donation will allow us to purchase advanced technologies and critical supplies to help us improve training capabilities, advance cognitive research, streamline field data collection and continue to support our local law enforcement partners.

Because of previous donations to the Help-Raise-a-Hero fund, we were able to place an Auburn Dog with a handler in the Auburn Police Department. It’s an honor to see how our almost 30 years of canine research is being applied in our community.

Please consider donating to CPS this Tiger Giving Day and help us keep man’s best friend, man’s best defense. War Eagle!
