Retired K9 medical bills are mounting. Please consider donating!

The Friends of the Reading Police K-9 Unit is unable to assist the retired K9s under our current structure. Our fund at Berks County Community Foundation is designated for the acquisition, training, and maintenance of the active members of Reading’s K-9 Unit. As much as the Community Foundation would like to assist with the mounting medical bills for retired K-9s, the donations that the fund has received were legally designated for the active unit and not for the retired, former K-9 members.

These K-9s have served our community with successful apprehensions, narcotics finds, and officer and public safety.

Please consider contributing to our Go Fund Me effort to assist with the care of these retired K-9s.

“Ensuring their future so they can secure ours.”

The Friends of the Reading Police K-9 Unit’s mission is to financially support the K-9s, whether it’s for a dog wash station, repairs to the kennels, trauma aid kits, unexpected medical expenses or to purchase a K-9. Without your support we could not raise the funds to maintain the unit. Please consider donating today.
