Hero K9 was founded to resolve challenges faced by first responder agencies — law enforcement, search and rescue, and fire departments — across our nation. We do this by providing funds for K9s, training, and equipment, to empower these agencis to make a positive difference in our communities.
While K9s are generally considered a specialty unit, their service to our neighborhoods is irreplaceable. K9s locate lost children, aid in arson detection, and find criminals in unexpected hiding places. These working dogs sniff out illicit substances… and protect their handlers.
This is our purpose because we believe in K9s. They are the reason we exist. Our mission is how we support our communities and make a difference… whether it’s right next door or all the way across the nation, each and every day.
