Dear Friends:

Thank you for your continued support of the Richmond Police Department K-9 Unit through Friends of Richmond K-9.  We are looking forward to our 2018 events and send an extra thank you to our returning and new sponsors.

This year, we are participating in the K-9s on Ridge event at the Tuckahoe shopping center on Saturday, April 28th in the lead up to our fourth annual ‘5K for K-9’s” that will be held on Saturday, May 12th.  Last year, we raised over $20,000 for the K-9 Unit at our 5k and we hope to have a successful race again this year.  In February, we had a successful event in partnership with CycleBar Greengate to kick off the new year.  As 2018 progresses, we will update the website and our social media with events and sponsorship opportunities.

All of our Board Members and volunteers work many long hours for no compensation to
support our nonprofit group.  All monies raised aid the Richmond Police Department K-9 Unit with training and supplies not covered in the Richmond City budget. We also help our retired K-9’s with food and medicine, as well as emergency veterinarian needs.

2018 promises to be another exciting year for Friends of Richmond K-9 and we thank you for being a part of supporting the hard working dogs and officers of the Richmond K-9 Unit.
