National Police Dog Foundation Funds

In 1998 the National Police Dog Foundation (formally known as the Ventura Police Dog Foundation) began as a local group helping to fund the K-9 program for the City of Ventura, CA. Ventura Police Department Lt. Dave Inglis and veterinarian Dr. Ron Dalzell, along with a few volunteers, realized the need for a civilian organization to help fund K-9 units. In addition, many cities in Ventura County lacked budgets to fund their K-9 programs in their entirety, so the Foundation expanded and became known as the Police Dog Foundation. Not only did police departments lack the initial funds to purchase and train a dog, many did not have a budget for serious medical issues. This continues to be the same circumstance today throughout the US, so the foundation expanded again and today is known as the National Police Dog Foundation. Visit our FAQs page to learn more.

Since 2004 the National Police Dog Foundation has been supporting K-9 units throughout the United States. We currently assist law enforcement agencies through funding to achieve their goals of providing their community with an effective  K-9 unit.

It is the mission of the National Police Dog Foundation to raise funds, promote education and awareness for the purchase, training and on-going veterinary care for active and retired police K-9s.

We hope you’ll join us in this effort by supporting this noble cause.
