About the Campaign
K9 Major is a 3-year-old Belgian Malinois certified in Patrol, Tracking/Trailing, and Narcotics. He is assigned to K9 Officer Matt Taylor of the Oxford Township OH Police Department. After being out of the academy for only 2 weeks, this K9 team was on a suicidal wanted felon with a weapon in the woods. Major was able to track the suspect down and take him into custody. He also alerted to narcotics in a vehicle and the driver was found to have 7x over the bulk amount of meth. K9 Major loves to play with his motorcycle tire when not on duty and checks on his family every night when he comes home.
Here’s how this equipment both helps Major and K9 Ofc. Taylor 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.
