Friends of Douglas County K-9 | Colorado

The Friends of Douglas County K-9 (K-9 Friends) is the only non-profit organization solely committed to the financial support of the Douglas County Sheriff's Office K-9 Unit. With the exception of deputy salaries and vehicles, the DCSO K-9 Unit is funded almost entirely by donations. Since 2011, K-9 Friends has had the privilege of helping the DCSO K-9 Unit purchase 11 new dogs, and provide world-class training, and an array of specialized equipment. We also provide top-notch veterinary care to retired K-9s so they can live out the rest of their lives in the best possible health.
