Are you one of our agencies on our K9 grant waitlist and you want to help fundraise for your K9s4COPs K9 grant? OR Are you a volunteer that wants to raise some money for K9s4COPs so we can grant a K9 to one of our agencies on our waitlist?
Then join us for Leashed- the Second Annual K9s4COPs Virtual Dog Walk taking place the entire month of October 2021.
REGISTER now to set up a virtual fundraiser for your agency on our K9s4COPs Virtual Dog Walk website. Easily personalize your fundraising page using our tools, then using your social media, email, text or old-fashioned word of mouth—spread the word to your community to help contribute towards the cost of your K9. We make it easy for you to get started and your registration page will include email, text and social media templates and photos that you can use in your ask.
All the 100% tax deductible donations will go directly to K9s4COPs and be saved as restricted funds for the purchase of a K9 for your department. Once you reach your goal (or amount it costs to pay for the K9 and training AND your agency is ready to accept a K9 (see our apply page for all the items you will need to have in place before a K9 will be granted) — then a K9 will be granted to your agency. This might be a faster way to get a K9 granted— if you can rally your community behind you.
You can even put together a Virtual Dog Walk team for your agency and really make it a team effort in getting your K9 funded.
Ps– our Virtual Dog Walk officially starts October 1, 2021— but feel free to get your page set up now and starts some early asks. We are ready for donations!
