K9s United was founded in June of 2015 by Debbie Johnson, who after hearing of the tragic death of Baron – a local K9 Officer – was moved to attend the funeral and work to help in any way she could. Upon her meeting with the Sergeant of the St. John’s County Sheriff’s office, she enrolled herself in the Civilian Law Enforcement Academy, wanting to immerse herself fully.
It was during the ride-along, and several meetings at the Sheriff’s office, that she learned that budgetary needs weren’t being met by the allocated funding. When her initial idea to host a charity golf tournament where the funds would go directly to the K9 units couldn’t be guaranteed, she requested the units send her the lists of what they needed. She then proceeded to tackle each one by purchasing the requested items and donating them directly to the units. It was then that K9s United was born.
K9 units across the US all have different needs, but the same budget constraints, meaning there will always be unmet needs. Thus, the goal of K9s United is to help supplement what’s not being met by these budgetary constraints in each K9 Unit.
K9s United works with agencies that reach out with a list of needs by identifying and establishing relationships with vendors to negotiate discounts, then by purchasing what’s needed at the discounted rated and donating it to the unit directly; and all funds go directly to helping these units. K9s United is dedicated to providing the necessary equipment & training K9 law enforcement officers need in order to protect communities across the country!
In addition, K9s United commissions artist Damon Jennings, since Baron’s death, to paint an 18x24 canvas portrait that is sent to every fallen K9 across the United States. Every decision made by K9s United has been to honor the sacrifice made by Baron and every other fallen K9 officer who came before and after.
Help us support these brave heroes with our newest Limited Time Design in partnership with K9s United before it’s gone!!!
