The National Police Dog Foundation promotes education and awareness,
and raises funds for the purchase, training, and ongoing veterinary care for active and retired police K-9s.

K-9 Purchasing

PURCHASING

Most law enforcement agencies do not have a budget for the purchase, training or protection of police K-9s. They heavily rely on generous public and corporate donations from people like you.

K-9 Training

TRAINING

Training and equipment get expensive. The National Police Dog Foundation assists law enforcement agencies with the costs associated with the initial process and training of the K-9s.

K-9 Protection

MEDICAL

K-9s put their life on the line every day to protect us. Law enforcement agencies constantly request assistance from the National Police Dog Foundation for the ever-increasing cost of medical care.

Today K-9 Betti from Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office was laid to rest. Thank you Dr Ron Dalzell for caring for her during her long career, during her retirement and during today's difficult time.

The German shepherd arrived in the United States in 2005 directly from Germany and attended training at the Inglis Police Dog Academy in Oxnard. After the academy Betti was purchased through public donations and National Police Dog Foundation Grant funding.

McNeil and his partner Betti completed the law enforcement patrol course, narcotics detection course and hard-surface tracking course training. She is trained to sniff out drugs including opium, cocaine, marijuana, heroin, ecstasy and methamphetamine.

Highlights of Betti's career include the tracking of a child molester over two miles of urban terrain, physically apprehending over 30 people and recovering over 300 tablets of the drug ecstasy in Orcutt.

McNeil called Betti a "push-button" dog because he said she always knew exactly what he was thinking and compared their relationship to a "husband-and-wife team" that was "like a marriage."

In every relationship there is one partner that "wears the pants" and their relationship is no different.

"Betti is the boss," McNeil said.

The birth of McNeil's twin daughters with wife Pam deterred Betti's official retirement, according to Lt. Butch Arnoldi. Her service began in October 2005 and ended July 2013.

That Ohio Vibe
It’s all paws on deck at the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, and we’re not talking about patrol canines. These four Deputy Sheriffs are part of a unique therapy dog unit that is the first of its kind in law enforcement. Trained in psychological or physiological support, these four legged officers are tasked with providing therapeutic assistance to a wide range of community members. They’ve brought courage to young victims in the courtroom, companionship to those with medical limitations, support to veterans, assistance to school children, and so much more. Be sure to check out FCSO Therapy K9 to follow all the adventures of these adorable officers.

This is awesome! I'm a criminal justice major, and for one of my assignments, I had to create an organization. I chose a police department with nearly as many K9s as actual officers. My K9 Units had specialties that included typical job duties but also for therapeutic assistance like this!
