2018 Heat Alarm Grants2018-06-29T10:26:14+00:00

The National Police Dog Foundation now accepting applications for 12 Heat Alarm Grants.

The National Police Dog Foundation is very pleased to announce its second round of K-9 Heat Alarm Grants!

Our K-9 Heat Alarm Fund came about when an article in our April 2017 newsletter about K-9 Heroes who fell during active duty in 2016, sparked an overwhelming response from our readers and supporters. We as well as our readers were shocked to learn the amount of K-9s that had died from heat exhaustion in patrol cars. The Foundation decided to take immediate action and help by providing grants for heat alarms.

In 2017 the National Police Dog Foundation awarded heat alarms to five law enforcement agencies.

In 2018 we are very pleased to announce, thanks to a matching donation from Spirit of Blue, that our K-9 Heat Alarm Fund will fund 12 Heat Alarm Grants (that’s more than twice we granted last year) to law enforcement agencies with the hope that we can bring enough awareness to the issue. We hope that one day every K-9 patrol car will be outfitted with these K-9 life-saving devices.

How will the heat alarms help? When temperatures get too hot in the vehicle the Heat Alarms can automatically:

  • activate the patrol car’s siren and light bar
  • roll down the back windows
  • notify the handler on a beeper or on their cell phone
  • alarms come with dual sensors to average the heat in the vehicle
  • alarms come with hot and cold alerts

Alarms can even be coupled with automatic door openers for a quick release of the K-9.

We welcome and encourage grant applications from all law enforcement agencies in the United States.

The National Police Dog Foundation is proud to grant funds and services that support law enforcement agencies, handlers, and K-9s.

Grant application deadline is July 27th, 2018. No applications will be accepted after this date. The 12 K-9 Heat Alarm Grants will be awarded at the beginning of August 2018.

The grant winners will be announced in our August 2018 newsletter and posted in our News section on the website.

The National Police Dog Foundation is proud to offer funds and services that support Law Enforcement Agencies, handlers, and K-9s.
