Alexandria Police Foundation

Law Enforcement K9 provides an invaluable service to our community.  Once retired, most law enforcement agencies do not provide for the retirement care of their K9s.  Financially, quality K9 health care becomes the sole responsibility of the K9 handler and their family.

The Alexandria Police Foundation was originally founded in 2002 to provide essential health care for the retired K-9 dogs.  When one of our K9 dogs retires, they stay with their handler and their family.  Our police families care for these K9s in their retirement and do so without continuing medical coverage.

Currently we have 5 K9 dogs that are retired, G'Kar - 10 years old, Zara - 9 years old, Trajan - 10 years old, Odin - 10 years old and Chance - 11 years old.  Sadly, we lost 3 K9s in the past year.  XigXag passed in 2020 at 9 years old, Czekay passed in 2021 at 10 years old and Rocco passed in 2020 at 13 1/2 years old. These dogs have worked hard during their time with the department and deserve in their retirement to be cared for. 

The Alexandria Police Foundation provides law enforcement K9s with financial assistance for health care needs in order to sustain a good quality of life.

Please consider making a donation so we can continue to care for our retired 4-legged friends.
