Our Mission

Virginia Police K-9 Association supports the health and welfare of active and retired police K-9s that serve or have served the Commonwealth of Virginia. We accomplish this by providing food, medicine, veterinary services, shelter and other equipment to the adopters of retired K-9 public servants as well as training and other equipment to the active police units in which these retired K-9s served. Our goal is to provide these goods and services at no cost to the recipients to the extent we are able through the generous contributions of our donors.
