On the HB forum, someone said she was donating her placenta for the training of human remains detection rescue dogs. I thought that sounded great (since I'm not interested in consuming it). So I emailed the Chesapeake Search Dogs organization.


I have to admit, I was nervous they'd respond, essentially, "Ew! You wack-job! No, we don't want a placenta!" Ha - but they are grateful & say it will be useful. The team leader even says he'll come pick it up at my house!


Here's the website. PM me if you want the team leader's direct email.


I was just going to have my MW take it with her to dispose of, but I'm glad it'll go to a good use.

as someone that has worked with search and rescue for years, this is really cool and so kind of you, those dogs are simply amazing and really important.
