K-9 Foundations

I’m excited to help support two Colorado K-9 foundations. Here’s more information about each of them:

Larimer Retired K-9 Foundation
The Larimer Retired K9 Foundation was started because the LSCO K9 deputies are a valuable asset to the safety of our community and have provided years of dedicated service during their active duty as a deputy. Our nonprofit foundation was formed to support K9 deputies when they are ready to retire, whether due to age or injury. The Larimer Retired K9 Foundation ensures the K9 handler and family can adopt their retired K9 deputy and lead a happy and healthy retirement without undue financial burden due to costs associated with the K9. Donations to the Larimer Retired K9 Foundation are used to pay for medical and care expenses for each LCSO retired K9. The mission is to ensure the devoted partnership between handler and retired K9 continues through the rest of the K9 deputy’s life.

Friends of Boulder County Sheriff K-9 Association
Established in April of 2017 as a 501(c)3, the Friends of Boulder County Sheriff K9 Association (BCSK9) was established in effort to provide financial assistance to the retired K9s of the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office, to include medical bills and memorial costs, a burden which is placed on the K9’s handler after retirement.

In addition to providing assistance to our retired K9 friends, Friends of BCSK9 strives to provide financial support to supplement the often underfunded canine unit. Although the Sheriff’s Office provides salaries & patrol vehicles for the handlers, as well as food and medical bills for the active K9’s, the budget can be quickly diminished by unexpected medical bills, leaving little to no funds to purchase new equipment or replace the worn equipment these heroes use on a daily basis.

I’m happy to support other K-9 organizations by donating books for auctions, highlighting your organization in my newsletter and more. Please contact me for more information.
