The Sacramento Police Canine Association is a Non-Profit tax-exempt public charity recognized under 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All donations are tax deductible.

Because we respect and care for our canine partners, we are dedicated to supporting them throughout their career and retirement. Here are some of the ways your donations help us do that.

Purchase of specialized protective equipment for the canine. This equipment may include but not be limited to ballistic vests, paw protection, cooling equipment, reflective equipment, lighting, and lifting harnesses.

Specialized canine training schools. Our canines are cross trained in many disciplines including tracking, naroctics, article searching and S.K.I.D.D.S, (Swat, K9, Interacting, During, Deployment, School). We are always attempting to hone and improve our canine’s skills and our association is sometimes able to assist with training costs that the city is not able to cover.

Medical bills for retired canines. We all know medical treatment can be expensive. Due to the nature of the job such as climbing fences and physical confrontations with suspects, retired canines often suffer serious medical issues such as chronic hip, bone and arthritis problems. Your donations help supplement their much needed care.
