USPCA Retired K9 Assistance Fund 

 Did you know that Law Enforcement Police Canines, like Zeus in this photo, serve their entire career keeping America Safe by keeping drugs off the streets,  out of jails,  finding explosives,  finding missing persons, and keeping their police officer handlers safe,  yet often retire with their agency or department being unwilling or unable to support that dog should he need medical attention?    This leaves the burden on the handler to ensure that this hero gets the best care regardless of the costs.. Those costs could reach thousands of dollars.   Police Agencies are not required to pay for any future needs after the dog retires,  so the USPCA is proud to offer a program where we will assist with the money involved in taking care of the dog after retirement.  


 Medical bills,  even just for a diagnosis, can run up to $5000!   And continued expenses often range in the thousands from year to year.       Handlers who adopt their Police dogs after retirement,  and most do,  are often faced with the difficult decision of trying to afford the best care possible for their retired partner.   

Here is what the USPCA is doing!  We have established a fund to assist our members with the medical needs of their retired Police dogs.  It's a big undertaking!  But the USPCA understands the sacrifices our USPCA dogs make to their handlers,  departments, and the public, and we want to try to find a way to help the handlers keep their partners healthy and happy in retirement!
