The Friends of Richmond K9 was created as a 501(c)3 not-for-profit foundation to facilitate educational opportunities, raise awareness of Police K9s and their activity/accomplishments, foster community support of Police dogs and K9 Officers, and provide assistance in meeting the needs of retired active duty Police dogs. Without your contributions we can’t help the K9 Unit. Your contributions go directly to assisting the K9 Unit in various ways such as training, equipment and more. There are several ways to donate, which can be seen on the “Contact Us” page.
