ABOUT HERO K9
Hero K9’s mission is to aid in protecting our nation by raising funds to provide the Public Safety community with K9s, training, and necessary equipment; and, their vision is to ensure that all public safety agencies have access to working dogs and the highest quality equipment and training so they may more effectively serve their communities across our great nation.
Hero K9 was founded to resolve challenges faced by public safety agencies — law enforcement, search and rescue, and fire departments — across our nation by providing K9s, training, and equipment so they are better able to make a positive difference in our communities.
While K9s are generally considered a specialty unit, their service to our neighborhoods is irreplaceable. They locate lost children, detect the spot a fire started, and find criminals in unexpected hiding places. They sniff out illicit substances… and they protect their handlers.
We believe in this 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 to us or half the nation away, each and every day.
