Six New K9’s Hit the Streets to Help Keep Us Safe.
K9s4COPs, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit, is pleased to present its Third Quarter K9 Roll Call – the nonprofit foundation is gifting six K9s this quarter. Founded in 2010, K9s4COPs mission is to ensure every law enforcement officer in need of a K9 has one at their side, well trained and ready for action.
