Since its inception, the Jimmy Ryce Center has given hundreds of bloodhounds to law enforcement agencies around the country.

There are close to 18,000 police and sheriff departments across the country that could benefit from the services of a Bloodhound.

Your donation  to the The Jimmy Ryce Center for Victims of Predatory Abduction allows us to place well trained AKC bloodhound puppies with law enforcement.
