50 K-9 Health Insurance Grant Recipients

K-9 Health Insurance ensures the best medical care for the K-9s

The National Police Dog Foundation is very pleased to announce 50 new K-9 Health Insurance Grant Recipients.

In 2017 the National Police Dog Foundation launched our K-9 Health Insurance Fund, which was established from an initial donation by Petplan pet insurance. The fund is supported by donations from the public to the K-9 Health Insurance Fund and a $50 donation from Petplan for each new pet insurance policy booked by the public using the campaign code NPDF10 at (available for all pets, not just K-9s). Please share with your friends and family who are interested in pet insurance to help us raise money for the fund. Pet parents will also receive up to 10% off their policy when they enroll using NPDF10.

Today we are pleased to announce the recipients of these grants that will help to ensure the continued well-being of our country’s K-9 officers.

Protecting K-9s with pet insurance is a great way to make sure that every K-9, both active and retired, receives the best possible medical care. These K-9s face hereditary conditions as well as occupational risks such as gunshot or stab wounds, lacerations, tail injuries, and exposure to highly toxic substances like illegal drugs, all of which can be extremely costly to remedy. Pet insurance can help to cover up to 90 percent of the thousands of dollars needed for veterinary care.

The National Police Dog Foundation is grateful to our sponsor Petplan, whose continued support and generous donations to our Foundation are improving the lives of K-9s nationwide. The K-9 Health Insurance Fund, which is providing these grants, was initially established by our sponsor Petplan Pet Insurance.

The National Police Dog Foundation is proud to work with our sponsors and to grant funds and services that support law enforcement agencies, handlers, and K-9s.

We are therefore pleased to announce and congratulate the 50 winners of the K-9 Health Insurance Grants.
