About the Campaign
K9 Kai is a three-year-old Belgian Malinois certified in Patrol, Tracking/Trailing, and Narcotics. Kai is partnered with Patrolman Marksberry of the Dayton KY Police Department. Kai is able to jump 8 ft from a sitting position. When he does jump, he looks more like a deer compared to being a dog. His athletism is very impressive.
Here’s how this equipment both helps Kai and Ptlm. Marksberry on the job:
An in-squad kennel allows the K9 to be safely transported when on the job! It fits securely into the rear seat of the squad and provides roll-cage level protection while a K9 is at work, on the road, and away from home.
The Ranger K9 Trauma Kit provides sterile, veterinary grade, K9-specific supplies to assist an officer in providing aid to their K9 in the event of an on-the-job incident or injury. This kit includes a canine oxygen mask, along with other first aid items, a quick reference sheet for K9 vitals and dosing, and comes in a heavy-duty, canvas bag that is embroidered with emblems ensuring that it is easily identifiable for K9 use.
NOTE: The funds collected as part of this fundraiser will be allocated to the agency’s Equipment Grant Application with Hero K9 for their K9. Should the application status change and/or if donations received are in excess of the goal amount, donations will be directed to the organization’s general fund to provide additional equipment grants and cover operational costs and/or other business-related expenses.
