Police K-9s can apprehend suspects, detect drugs and explosives, locate missing people, and even help find crime scene evidence. Despite the essential role that Police K-9s offer law enforcement, in many states and municipalities these programs are not funded by their local governments, which means they heavily rely on private donations.
A sponsorship of a police K-9 is always a win-win. In some instances a K-9 cannot complete the requirements necessary to become a police officer. Under these circumstances, we will retrain the K-9 to be used as therapy dog for veterans suffering from PTSD or who have intellectual learning disabilities. We also ensure that the police department that we committed a K-9 donation receives a replacement K-9. Once educated, many small and large businesses appreciate the value of a K-9 and utilize a sponsorship as a way to demonstrate their commitment to a community. Looking to become a sponsor?
