Wishing K-9 Echo a speedy recovery! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ

Please keep K-9 Echo in your thoughts and prayers as he is recovering from an emergency surgery earlier today. K-9 Echo began to show signs of being sick on Sunday. Officer Martinez took K-9 to Mount Laurel Animal Hospital where the staff did X-rays which showed a possible intestinal obstruction. The intestinal obstruction was confirmed by an ultrasound and K-9 Echo was quickly moved to surgery. The entire staff at the Mount Laurel Animal Hospital, worked very quickly to remove the obstruction and K-9 Echo was released from the hospital. K-9 Echo has at least 2-3 weeks of recovery ahead of him. Thank you to the entire staff at the hospital for your hard work. He is at home with with handler and the entire family who will keep him safe while recovering.

"Based on the inspirational True Story of a Marine Corps K9 Team that experienced everything together, for the first time.

Take the journey on a combat deployment through Afghanistan and see how โ€œGriefโ€ became much more than just a dog name. Bullets & Explosives are just background noise in a Tail of heartbreak and joy. This team has been through it all, but little did they know that one October night would start the longest mission of their lives.

The author's goalย is to give the American people an insight into what young men and women experienced during a combat deployment in Afghanistan. The stories told in this book allow the reader to better understand the hardships of War andย surviving with the lossย of a friend or battle buddy."

In Loving Memory of K-9 Quest
๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿš”๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
It is with heavy hearts that we share the news of the passing of our beloved K-9 hero, Quest, with the SEPTA Transit Police K9 Unit.

Quest was an extraordinary K-9, known for his loving, caring, and protective nature. His presence brought comfort to his handler, fellow officers, and the entire community he served.

Beyond his role as a Police K-9, Quest touched countless lives with his gentle demeanor and unwavering dedication. His interactions with the community were a shining example of the goodness in the world.

As we bid farewell to Quest, we extend our deepest condolences to his handler, family, Septka Transit Police, and all who had the privilege of knowing him.

Let us remember him not with tears, but with smiles, as we celebrate a life well-lived and a heart that was always in the right place.

To our supporters.... Thank you for your unwavering support, which enables us to provide life-saving equipment for Police K-9s like K-9 Quest. Your donations make a real difference in the lives of these brave four-legged officers.

Today, we join the nation in solemn remembrance of September 11th, 2001, a day that forever changed our world.

Our hearts go out to the families who lost loved ones, and to all those who continue to carry the scars of that tragic day.

As we reflect on the past, let us also honor the immense bravery and unwavering resolve of those who rushed to help, demonstrating the true spirit of unity and resilience.

In the midst of chaos, heroes emerged. Firefighters, Police Officers, EMS, first responders, healthcare professionals, and countless others showed incredible courage and dedication. Their sacrifices and selflessness will never be forgotten.

On Saturday evening, Lt. Mike Loring and K9 Abe assisted Plymouth Police Department tracking a suspect that fled the scene of a crime.

Shortly after arriving on scene, K9 Abe picked up a track and located the suspect hiding behind a large stone in a densely wooded area.
Subsequently, the suspect was taken into custody without incident by Plymouth Officers.

Our Story

Our goal in establishing this exciting organization was to create a bond amongst existing members, welcome new members, and honor those who have served in the past. We are also expanding our donations to not just bullet proof vests, but training and other safety equipment as well. We are dedicated to educating law enforcement and the public of the various functions that K-9 teams perform on a daily basis and to give back to the community.

In some of the most dangerous situations involving Police Departments across the nation, the K-9 Teams are often the first to be called to the front line. At almost 2,000 Line of Duty Deaths since 1940, the Law Enforcement Community has lost entirely too many K-9โ€™s as a result of inadequate or unavailable body armor. Schultzโ€™s Law, established in 2011, orders similar punishment for causing harm or death to a Police K-9, to that of causing harm of death to a human Officer. This is a major step for those in the K-9 world; however, this does not bring our beloved partners back. Without hesitation, our K-9 Partners would protect us with their lives, why not aid in protecting their lives as well?

In April of 2011, the newly reinstated Trenton Police K-9 Unit established the Capital K-9 Association, a 501-C3 non-profit organization. During this time of budget crisis throughout the nation, the founders of CK9A want to ensure that no K-9 goes unprotected due to lack of funds. The current members of the Capital K-9 Association whole-heartedly understands the importance of protecting working K-9โ€™s. These K-9โ€™s are not only a work partner for the Officers who are honored to work with them, but they also become a vital part of the family and community.

Through our fundraising efforts, and the generous donations of individuals and businesses that support our organization, we have been successful in outfitting working K-9โ€™s throughout the state of New Jersey with ballistic body armor. The working K-9โ€™s main goal is to โ€œget the bad guyโ€ and ensure his/her Handler makes it home to their family, the Capital K-9 Associationโ€™s main goal is to ensure that the K-9โ€™s make it home too!
