The Police K-9 Association is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and charitable organization responsible for training and assisting 60 active and retired K-9 teams between 20 departments. As the need for K-9's continues to grow, so does our organization's responsibility to support these K-9 teams. There are significant costs in starting and maintaining a prosperous K-9 program. City and county financial budgets often limit needed funding for K-9's. The PK9A assists agencies by offsetting the cost of education, training, equipment, and the medical needs of both active and retired K-9's.
