The Police K-9 Support for Fort Worth

Founded in November 2013 as a non-profit, 501(c)(3), organization, primarily, to aid in the medical cost of the retired Fort Worth Police service dogs. Upon retirement of a police service dog in Fort Worth all veterinary costs fall onto the handler, who assumes full financial responsibility for the dog. This fund was created to ensure that the retired police service dogs are taken care of long after their tour of duty. As many pet owners know, the cost to maintain the health and wellness of aging dogs can be very costly. The hazards of apprehending felons, seizing illegal narcotics, and shift work are hard on the dog’s bodies. These dogs retire to their handler and they deserve the best care available to them in their latter days, as a cherished member of the handler’s family.  Secondly, the fund will ensure that unit has access to equipment, otherwise not provided through city funding due to recent budget cut-back city wide.  Thank you in advance for your continued support of these deserving police service dogs.
