The 2017 Gala was the most successful since the charity’s founding in 2011.
Fortunately, you can still contribute to the K-9 Unit by making a one-time donation.
The 2017 Howling Good Time Gala was a tribute for K-9 Borris who passed away peacefully at his home in May. Borris served the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office as former Deputy Gerritt Kaufman’s partner between March 2005 and October 2012, and he did so without fear or reservation.
All donations to K-9 Friends and proceeds from the Gala directly benefit the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit. Training and safety gear are always at the top of the wish list for our K-9s, and ongoing medical care for retired dogs is essential.
Animal Emergency & Specialty Center Gracious supporters of K-9 Friends since our inception, the Animal Emergency & Specialty Center (AESC) has been named the first ever Ongoing Platinum Sponsor by the Board of Directors. The DCSO K-9 Unit counts on AESC when there’s an emergency and you can, too. AESC provides expert emergency and critical care, internal medicine, specialized surgery and specialty care services including radiology/ultrasound, cardiology and rehabilitation therapy for your pets.

Coors At Coors Brewing Company, our leadership in sustainability started back in 1959. That year, Coors helped launch the recycling revolution when it pioneered the aluminum can and sparked a recycling movement. And we’ve been building on that legacy ever since – not just in the area of recycling but in supporting the community with investments in jobs, water stewardship and responsible drinking.
Franktown Animal Clinic Franktown Animal Clinic has been providing expert veterinary care in the Southeast Denver area since 1990. Their new medical center is one of the largest and best-equipped in the state of Colorado. But it’s their PEOPLE who make the difference for your pet.
The kind of genuine commitment to K-9 Friends we’ve seen in previous years is truly amazing. It is an honor to be surrounded by these caring sponsors as well as so many other great friends who have given so generously and volunteered with such passion. Together, we’ll make this year’s Gala even better!
