COVER YOUR K9 STAT PACK!
The Cover Your K-9 Stat Pack is an innovative portable emergency kit that is equipped with specialized hemostatic gauze to stop bleeding and other emergency supplies for a K-9 handler to have on his/her belt at all times. 
"The biggest threat to a K-9 that has been shot or injured in the field is bleeding to death, this Stat Pack is the first line of defense for a K-9 handler to save his partner," said Officer Alex Jose, Chairman of the
Police & Working K-9 Foundation.
"GO TO BAT FOR BOSCO" FUNDRAISER
K-9 Bosco served the community for many years as the second police dog to serve the City of Rohnert Park.  On Valentine’s Day he had emergency surgery & lost his right front leg due to cancer.  With the help of Pet Food Express, our "Cover Your K-9" Retired K-9 Care Fund has donated $1000 toward his surgery & together with additional donations from the community we have been able to contribute $7,275 toward retired K9 Bosco's care. Bosco has successfully completed his first round of treatment with Proleukin & now needs help for his second round of therapy.  Bosco's vet has donated her time and we need help with an additional $3,760 for his final round of the special  Proleukin therapy.  Please help K-9 Bosco by donating for his care!
