Advisory Council

Tri-Color, board, hero k9, advisory, k9, police, fire, search and rescueHero K9’s Advisory Council works closely with our Board of Directors. It provides recommendations for our grant offerings, business, marketing efforts, and other areas of expertise. This council helps the board make sure that we offer the best equipment and service available. As a result, we will be better able to accomplish our mission and make a difference for working K9s across the United States. This benefits all of our equipment grant recipients, donors, as well as supporters of our cause.

Each member of our council is a strong supporter of public safety agencies. They believe in the additional benefit that K9s provide to an agency’s success. The experience of council members includes, but is not limited to, K9 handling, agency operations, marketing, business, legal, and veterinary care.
