Fallen K-9 Heroes of 2017

Fallen K-9 Heroes of 2017


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.

The fund assists in covering the costs directly associated with: – the replacement of K-9s and related training can cost as much as $25,000.00 per K-9 to be street ready – the Annual Police K-9 Memorial Service during Police Week in Washington, DC

As part of the official events of Police Week in Washington, DC, the National Police Dog FoundationFOP DC Lodge #1LA Rescued, and United for Blue will be co-hosting the 1st Annual Police K-9 Memorial Service. The memorial service includes a wreath-laying ceremony to honor the memory of fallen police K-9s who have given their lives in the line of duty.

The event is held at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, 450 F St. NW, Washington, DC, to remember the contributions and sacrifices of our fallen K-9 Heroes.

In honor of Police Week, the National Police Dog Foundation will showcase our appreciation for these K-9s heroes, by acknowledging their department with a certificate of remembrance for their fallen K-9.

Please donate to our K-9 Memorial Fund that supports law enforcement departments and their K-9s who selflessly put their lives on the line for us every day.
