About Us


Friends for Las Vegas Police K9's was founded in 1990 by the members of the K9 unit.  The organization is a non-profit organization which was originally formed to support the Las Vegas Police K9 Trials. The Friends For Las Vegas Police K9's is completely independent of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. All monies raised by its members stay with the organization and are solely used to improve the performance of the K9 unit and maintain a high quality of life for the active and retired police service dogs. With the hard work and dedication of past and present members Friends for Las Vegas Police K9's has grown into a multi functional organization that supports many projects within the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department K9 unit.

Such as
1.  Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Annual Police K9 Trial
2.  Medical and Dental care for Retired dogs
3.  Equipment for Training of the Police Service Dogs
4.  Training and Seminars for the K-9 Handlers and their K9 partners
5.  Purchasing and maintenance of agility equipment for K-9 training
6.  Administrative cost in running the organization.
7.  Providing travel expense and costs associated with K9 teams participating in other K9 trials
8.  Funeral and burial costs for both active and retired police service dogs
9.  Providing needed equipment to handlers that the department does not provide
10. Provide safety equipment for Police Service Dogs
11. Provide signs for business owners to post, stating that Police K-9 training is done there and to warn potential criminals of the same, thus reducing Burglaries.

To raise money to provide for the above costs the organization sells tee shirts and sells fireworks during the 4th of July. In addition, since we are a non profit  501C-3 organization  we accept monetary donations that are tax deductible under our tax ID# 88-0272737. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation, to assist with our organization, you may do so by credit card by clicking on the secured link below.  Please send any donations in the form of cash or check to:
