Retired K-9 Medical Fund

Retired K-9 Medical Fund offers grants that assist Law Enforcement Agencies and Handlers with costs related to the medical fees of retired K-9s. It is equally important to provide continued care for the police service dog after it retires. Our network of veterinarians includes some of the country’s most valued specialists in many varying areas of health care.

Population(s) Served
Emergency responders

The National Police Dog Foundation in an effort to encourage all law enforcement agencies to get K-9 health insurance for their active K-9 units has created this fund to ensure the K-9s receive a high level of medical care that will keep them healthy, at work, and on the force longer.

Population(s) Served
Emergency responders

The National Police Dog Foundation’s K-9 Memorial Fund is a fund that has been set up to assist Law Enforcement Agencies who are not only grieving from the loss of one of their K-9 officers but also who do not have the funds to replace the K-9s. Each year dozens of K-9s who are the first line of defense, fall in the line of duty.

Population(s) Served
Emergency responders

It is an unfortunate fact that dozens of law enforcement K-9s die from heat exhaustion in patrol cars every year.
The National Police Dog Foundation K-9 Heat Alarm Fund, purchases vehicle heat alarms for law enforcement agencies who cannot afford the alarms. Heat exhaustion is a major cause of death for active K-9s.

Population(s) Served
Emergency responders

Active K-9 Medical Fund offers grants that assist Law Enforcement Agencies with costs related to medical fees of active K-9s. In addition, the National Police Dog Foundation has also incorporated a network of veterinarians to help assist agencies with providing for maintenance care and possible emergencies as well as costly medical situations that might occur during their active service career.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our family of funds that are funded by sponsors and the public, allows the Foundation to give grants to law enforcement K-9 units.

Our strategies to grow our available funds are the following:\r\n- create more public and corporate awareness of the issues facing law enforcement K-9 units, thereby raising funds to help support them\r\n- expand our funds to allow for designated giving to specific funds\r\n- create national events that will allow national media attention on the great work we do\r\n- demonstrate that underfunded K-9 units are a public safety issue\r\n- we are increasing our communications both to the public and the K-9 units\r\n- through direct communication, we are accessing the most important needs of law enforcement K-9 units

- We are growing and diversifying our board\r\n- We are bringing on consultants help grow and structure the foundation through its growth\r\n- We are forming national alliances with partners and sponsors\r\n- Our increased communication channels and automation are allowing us to reach many many more potential donors

Over the last few years, the Foundation has expanded tremendously in the following areas:\r\n- Amount of donations received\r\n- Amount of grants give out\r\n- Amount of newsletter and social media recipients and followers, about four-fold in 18 months\r\n- We have expanded our funds to cater to the most requested needs of law enforcement K-9 units
