Dog-wash event benefits police K-9s

Pet Food Express will host the largest fundraiser for working K-9s in the state of California this coming weekend, and will unveil the new wearable K-9 Stat Pack.

Check it out
What: Sixth annual Cover Your K-9 fundraiser (hoping to reach $600,000 raised in six years)
When: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, July 12, and Sunday, July 13, with K-9 appearances and demonstrations from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days
Where: Pet Food Express, 2171 Cowell Blvd. in Davis

Here’s how it works: Wash your dogs at Pet Food Express on Saturday or Sunday, July 12-13, and 100 percent of the pet wash sales goes directly to “Cover Your K9” to provide safety equipment for police dogs. Each wash costs $15, or donate directly to Cover Your K9.

Pet Food Express and its customers have raised nearly $500,000 for the Cover Your K-9 nonprofit over the past five years. There will be K-9s at Pet Food Express, in the Oakshade Town Center at 2171 Cowell Blvd., for special demonstrations.

The Cover Your K-9 “Stat Pack” is about the size of a wallet and is equipped with specialized hemostatic pads to stop bleeding and other emergency supplies for a K-9 handler — a high-tech first-aid kit for K9s.

“With every minute being critical in the event of an injury to our K-9 partners, the Cover Your K-9 Stat Pack will be an invaluable resource for handlers to have on them at all times,”  said Officer Alex Jose, chairman of the Police & Working K-9 Foundation.

Each life-saving pack costs approximately $75. The Stat Pack was designed partly in response to the shooting of Sacramento Sheriff K-9 Drago in 2013, Sacramento PD K-9 Bodie in 2012 and K-9 Bruno in Anaheim in March of this year.

The Cover Your K9 Fund is a project of the nonprofit all-volunteer Police & Working K-9 Foundation, a nonprofit corporation working to keep law enforcement K-9 teams covered with safety equipment and emergency medical care. All proceeds donated to this fund are tax-deductible and are used for the purchase of safety equipment such as K-9 Stat Packs, bullet-proof vests, heat alarms and K-9 trauma kits for law enforcement K-9s, and for an emergency medical care fund for retired K-9s.
