About the Campaign
K9 Kiko is a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois certified in Explosive Detection. He is owned, trained, and handled by Brandon Holiday of Red, White & Blue K9. Kiko was born in Colombia, South America in 2018 and has been a quick learner and always wants to work. His love of work is matched only by his love of tennis balls. If there were 10 tennis balls on the ground, Kiko would do his best to try to fit them all in his mouth. If he’s not sniffing and searching, Kiko is licking his Dad’s face. K9 Kiko is a lover and Brandon feels truly blessed.
Here’s how this equipment both helps Kiko and Handler Holiday on the job:
The door pop allows the K9 handler officer to remotely unlatch the door so their K9 may exit the squad car and come to their aid, should a call for service take a turn for the more dangerous; while, the heat alarm system monitors the interior air temperature of the squad car and sets off the sirens, lights, alarms, and rolls down the windows of the car to help ensure that a K9 doesn’t suffer from heat trauma if the temperature rises into a dangerous threshold.
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.
