K9s4KIDs provides trained K9s to schools and universities and was created in 2013 after the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook. The K9s4KIDs initiative provides K9s to schools making them a safer place for students, faculty, staff and visitors.
K9s4KIDs was created to sustain an alternative, kinder and gentler approach to keeping our school children safe.
Statistics show that having a trained K9 on campus serves as a double deterrent, keeping narcotics from being distributed and serving as a personal protection barrier between potential harm to our innocent students. These exceptional K9s, along with their handlers, sweep thousands of classrooms, lockers and cars each school year.
In addition to the safety of having a trained police dog on campus to protect the students— these four-legged officers and their handlers provide outreach by visiting with students at school assemblies, events and participating in crime safety prevention presentations. These fast acting K9s also provide security at sporting events and school venues and have protected an estimated two million people from the threat of bombs and explosives.
We are committed to being part of a solution that works to keep our communities, schools and children safe.
We do not believe that budget cuts should get in the way of our children’s safety. If your school district or campus police is in need of a K9 and needs assistance, please see our FAQs below and contact us at 936- 825-9900 or firstname.lastname@example.org
