The Hometown Foundation, Inc. offers a wide range of support to law enforcement throughout the year. We are proud to donate fully funded K-9s to local and state police departments across the country. The K-9s are donated at no cost to the departments and equipped with the necessary training and gear needed to perform at their best.
One of the ways we do this is by offering two annual K-9 Challenges. One is held in Newtown, CT and the other one is held In Farmington, CT at our Dream Ride Experience. At these challenges, the K-9s are evaluated on areas such as obedience, obstacles, and apprehension K-9 drills.
The handlers and their K-9s are also invited to utilize our Training Facility located at the Farmington Polo Grounds in Farmington, CT. The Training Facility is equipped with K-9 obstacles, scent-tracking areas, obedience drills, and simunition training areas. The Facility is available all year round to our K-9 Handlers and Officers.
