K9s4Cops, founded in 2010, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to ensure that every law enforcement officer who is in need of a K9 has one at their side and ready for action….much like the goal of The Ben Roethlisberger Foundation!

In fact, K9s4Cops is no stranger to Ben’s foundation. They were instrumental in helping the Houston Police Department put together a grant in the summer of 2011.

When the agency was awarded a grant during that NFL season, k9s4Cops tweeted a “Thank You” to Ben, telling their followers that “our next crime fighting K9 ‘Big Ben’ will proudly wear the #7 on his collar!!”.

K9s4Cops has also given Ben’s website some great portrait-style and action photos to use when posting foundation grant news!

Congratulations to K9s4Cops for having the best looking float at the parade!
