​When people need protection, they turn to the police. When an officer needs protection, they turn to a K9. 

Deputy Johnny Walker

Our vision is a foundation dedicated to supporting Law Enforcement K9 Units across the nation.  We envision safe communities and schools patrolled by law enforcement with highly trained K9s ready for action.  We believe that a lack of funds should not be the obstacle for any agency working to keep our streets safe.  We seek to become the portal of resources and support for law enforcement K9 Units in need.

On December 28, 2009, I was sitting at home in Houston watching the news. The story was about Harris County Precinct 4 Deputy Constable Ted Dahlin and K9 Blek, a Czech-German shepherd.
