At a time when many Americans view the nation as less safe than it was prior to 9/11, The Auburn DogTM remains at the forefront of creating a safer America — and a safer world. Highly intelligent, focused, determined, and motivated, Auburn dogs are the world’s most advanced canine detection technology, trained to detect the vapor wake of bombs in the midst of a crowd of hundreds of thousands of people. These elite dogs are being developed through a program like none other in the world — Auburn’s College of Veterinary Medicine Canine Performance Sciences (CPS) program.
Pursuing a more secure America and world is an endeavor with special significance to Larry Carter, 1962 veterinary medicine graduate, and his wife, Nancy. Their recent $200,000 gift through the Diane Carter Memorial Fund to support Auburn’s CPS program was made in memory of their daughter, Diane, who was killed in a terrorist bombing in Israel.
Through Because This is Auburn — A Campaign for Auburn University, generous donors like the Carters have enabled CPS to conduct cutting-edge research and training, increasing the capabilities of these dogs to detect existing and emerging threats. As the most advanced, real- time defense against terrorism, Auburn dogs can be found in cities across the globe making the world a safer, more secure place.
