What Makes Project K9 Hero Different?


As founder of Project K9 Hero, people ask me all the time what sets our charity apart from other dog organizations. It’s a very good question and one that I am proud to answer. While there are many organizations out there like ours, we are very unique, in the sense that we focus on retired Police K9 “Heroes.”

Our program is filled with K9’s with exemplary backgrounds who were left with no funding by their departments once they retired.

We provide medical care, food and death benefit assistance to those who have given our country and our communities their very best over a long career. Our program is filled with K9’s with exemplary backgrounds who were left with no funding by their departments once they retired.

Let’s take a look at one of our program members, K-9 “Kirby,” for an example. K-9 Kirby had over 4,000 deployments in her career, resulting in the seizure of over $105 million in narcotics and drug tainted currency. K-9 Kirby was responsible for the seizure of over 240 kilograms of cocaine, 50 kilograms of heroin, 5 tons of marijuana and $15 million in currency. One would think that with all of those seizures, a fund would be set aside to take care of Kirby for life, right? Unfortunately, that is not the case, and that is why Project K9 Hero exists – to make sure heroes like Kirby are well taken care of once they retire.

Project K9 Hero wants to see a good life for every dog in need, but it is our mission to support the dogs who have put their lives on the line to serve their communities and their country.

Please don’t misunderstand, Project K9 Hero wants to see a good life for every dog in need, but it is our mission to support the dogs who have put their lives on the line to serve their communities and their country. Dogs like K9 Kirby, who in 2012, the American Kennel Club granted the award for Canine Excellence/Law Enforcement Division during the 2012 AKC/Eukanuba National Dog Show. Please watch the attached video of Kirby receiving her award at the event and check out K9 Kirby’s bio page here. These are the dogs we take care of, and this is where your donations go – to K9’s like Kirby. They spent their lives protecting us, so I will spend mine protecting them!

Respectfully,

Jason Johnson

Founder of Project K9 Hero
