On March 25, K9s4COPs celebrates their 4 year anniversary!
In this short amount of time, they have granted 83 K9s to 53 agencies and 5 schools in 17 states and removed $50 million worth of contraband & cash from the streets of your communities.
They don’t stop there though. In December, K9s4COPs partnered with AMK9 Academy in Alabama to place returning “Hero Dogs” from Afghanistan into police departments and has now successfully placed ten Afghan dogs. One of these Hero Dogs, K9 Fox, has even been nominated for the American Humane Society’s 2015 Hero Dog Awards.
Due to all the great work that K9s4COPs has done in their home state of Texas, and all across the country, the State of Texas is recognizing March 26, 2015 as ‘K9s4COPs Day‘. Founder Kristi Schiller will be honored in front of the House and Senate sessions on the morning of Thursday, March 26 at the Texas Capitol in Austin, TX. K9s4COPs’ K9 Gus with Travis County Sheriff’s Office will also be in attendance to represent the organization. Gus is a Dual Purpose Narcotics K9 and was granted to TCSO in 2013. Gus passed all his certifications in July 2014 and since then has removed $60,000 in cash, $10,000 in narcotics, one apprehension and three firearms from the streets of Travis County.
