Since 2014, Rochester Area CRIME STOPPERS’ K-9 Initiative has provided financial support for unexpected veterinary expenses for ill and injured K-9s. These highly-trained and hardworking animals track lost children and the elderly; detect explosives and narcotics; and are beloved partners in law enforcement. They protect the police officer as well as the community.

The K-9s receive excellent routine veterinary care year-round but can become ill or injured while in service. Thanks to the CRIME STOPPERS K-9 INITIATIVE, we are able to provide financial assistance during a difficult time and help our K-9 friends on the road to recovery. We depend upon support from local businesses and individuals to fund this worthy initiative – and there are many interesting ways to help.

From “Jeans Day” fundraisers to K-9 Donation Jars, Car Washes or Company Coffee Hours, we are grateful to the many businesses and individuals who have come up with fun and unique ways to raise money for our local K-9s.

Every year, CRIME STOPPERS hosts a “Meet The K-9s!” Press Conference at the Public Safety Training Facility where we recognize and honor those who have donated to the K-9 Initiative. The press conferences are always well-attended and a media hit! Where there’s a K-9, there’s a crowd!
