As Police K9 Handlers and Trainers, the staff at JIREH K9 has first hand experience with the budgeting constraints law enforcement agencies are faced with.  Year after fiscal year too many agencies push back the idea of adding a K9 Unit to their ranks for nothing more than lack of funding.  The implementation of a working dog has never been more of a necessity for law enforcement agencies of any size.

As a result, JIREH K9 has developed working relationships with quality working dog breeders, dog rehabilitation programs, rescue missions, and everyday dog owners who's dogs are simply not cut out to be house pets.  Through this partnership we've been able to evaluate and select dogs that possess the drives and natural characteristics for Police K9 training.  With the help of our trusted partners and the Police K9 Trainers at JIREH K9, we've been successful in implementing "The Police K9 Grant Program" Our mission is to place working dogs into organizations where a need exists but, funds are limited or non-existent for a K9 Unit.  




We're glad you asked!  It's simple...Apply for the grant...Gain approval... Receive a FREE working dog.  That's right, FREE!  Because most of our partners in this initiative will donate prospective working dogs to us, in turn we can donate them to you.  The only cost your agency would be responsible for is the amount for K9 Handler training and lodging for the duration of your training course. 

Due to the very high volume of applicants for this program, K9s cannot be reserved but the agency can choose from working dogs that are available at the time of course registrations. Check out our full training schedule projected through the end of the year and reserve your seat in training today!!

How to Donate

The Police K9 Grant Program was established for law enforcement agencies with very limited or no budgets for a K9 Unit.  Our goal is to off-set the cost of a working dog to make it possible for organizations to receive a dog at no cost.  While the agency will be responsible for the cost of K9 handler training and lodging, any participating organization would be saving in excess of $9,000.00 with a free dog. 

Our trainers are constantly searching for Police K9 prospects that have what it takes to make our training program.  We are always looking for opportunities to establish working relationships with working dog breeders, rescue missions or pet owners who's dogs were built for something more.  Our professional trainers will evaluate your dogs at no cost to determine their eligibility.  If you feel you have a dog that is up for the challenge and, wanting to donate that dog to our program, contact one of our Police K9 Trainers to schedule an appointment.  

Help us help those men and women who sacrifice so much to protect our communities.  All and any monetary donations received will go towards K9 health care & Veterinarian costs, preventative maintenance, dog training equipment, dog food & nutritional essentials, and travel costs for evaluating and transporting dogs from outside of our local area.  We hope that you would consider donating to this great cause and, help us put K9s to work.
