The 2022 K9 Heat Alarm Grants

Grant application deadline is April 30, 2022.

The National Police Dog Foundation is once again pleased to announce it is offering 15 K9 Heat Alarm Grants.


Thanks to a matching donation from Spirit of Blue Foundation and a generous $5,000 donation from an anonymous donor, the Foundation can help agencies reduce the amount of unnecessary injury and death from heat exhaustion in patrol cars. K9 Heat Alarm Fund offers grants that assist law enforcement agencies with the costs related to the purchase of heat alarms in vehicles equipped for K9s. Heat exhaustion is a major cause of death for active K9s.

How do heat alarms help? When temperatures get too hot in the vehicle the Heat Alarms can automatically:

  • Activate the patrol car’s siren and light bar

  • Roll down the back windows

  • Alarms come with dual sensors to average the heat in the vehicle

  • Alarms come with hot and cold alerts​

  • Alarms can even be coupled with automatic door openers for a quick release of the K9
