Why We Exist

K9s4COPs was formed to assist Law Enforcement Agencies and School Districts with the funding to purchase K9s.

Fully trained law enforcement K9s cost $20,000-$45,000 per dog. Most agencies and school districts struggle when budgeting for the purchase of a K9. K9s4COPs was founded to bridge this gap and ensure that the cost of a K9 never stands in the way of a community or school’s safety.

Why K9s are Important

  • K9s have a rich history of working with law enforcement and military units dating back to the 1800s.

  • Police K9s receive specific training to assist law enforcement in ways others cannot.

  • K9s are used to sweep venues for explosives, search buildings for narcotics, and apprehend suspects on the run.

Our Mission

The mission of K9s4COPs to fund the purchase of highly trained K9 partners for law enforcement agencies and schools across the country.

K9 Super Powers

  • The structure of a dog’s nose gives it a sense of smell that is 300,000-500,000 times stronger than the human nose.
  • This superpower allows them to follow a scent trail undetectable to humans.

  • K9s can even breaking down specific scents. Humans can smell beef stew cooking, whereas a K9 smells individual ingredients like the onions, carrots, and thyme.
