K-9 MATCHING
GRANT PROGRAM

ABOUT

Through our Canine Support and Relief Fund, AKC Reunite works with AKC Clubs to donate K-9 police dogs to police departments around the United States. Many police department K-9 units are suffering budget cuts and they are unable to solicit money due to town and municipality codes. The donations from AKC Reunite and AKC Clubs allow the police department’s need for a new K-9 to become a reality.
