K9 Nas is a 6-year-old Belgian Malinois certified in Patrol and Narcotics work. He is assigned to Officer Stephanie Collazo and became a member of the City of Miami FL Police Department in August 2014. Nas began his formal police training in 2014 and has completed over 700 hours. He likes going for walks, playing ball, chewing on his Kong, jumping fences, and training days. K9 Nas has a strong dislike of being alone and loves the attention of his family.
Here’s how this equipment grant would help K9 Nas and Officer Collazo 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.
