When a police K9 retires, most times the handler takes him home and gives him a great retirement as a much-loved family pet.
While all expenses for K9s are covered while they are working dogs, once they retire the handler also agrees to take over all expenses for food and medical care.
Given that these dogs work HARD for many years and are usually seniors when they retire, the handlers are often taking on quite an expense to give their K9s the retirement they deserve. In Sarasota County, FL, a fund has been created to help offset these costs and ensure a comfortable retirement for our K9 officers and their devoted handlers.
Anyone can donate to this fund, and their donation goes directly to these amazing dogs! Details in the comments on the video below.
