Whether you walk around the block or hit the trails, every STEP you take and every DOLLAR you raise, helps us purchase more K9s to make communities and schools safer!
All money raised by your efforts will help us purchase highly-trained K9s for law enforcement agencies, fire departments and school police departments who need our support more than ever now. A K9, along with the initial training, starts at $15,000 and can exceed $45,000, depending on the K9’s discipline and detection skills. These costs, coupled with budget constraints, prevent agencies from purchasing or replacing a much-needed K9.
K9s are invaluable to the safety of our communities. They are used to sweep for explosives, search for narcotics, apprehend suspects on the run and search/rescue missing people. Plus- K9 partners help officers do their jobs safer, faster and, in many cases, have saved their lives.
Thank you for your support!
