Martin County Sheriffs Office K9 Fundraiser

Project Paws Alive has kicked off a fundraiser for K9 Grim of the Martin County (KY) Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit.

K9 Grim needs a K9 vehicle transport system, a vehicle alert system, and a K9 first aid kit to help keep him safe while he’s on duty.

The K9 Heat Alarm units monitor and alert on vital components including temperature, vehicle battery voltage, engine stall, and include a door-popper system. This system not only makes automatic corrective actions to the heat such as opening windows and turning on fans, it audibly and visually alerts everyone nearby. As a last measure, the system will open the vehicle door allowing the K9 to exit. From beginning to end the officer is alerted via horns, sirens, lights and digital transmitters worn on their person. The unit also includes a cold temp alert should the vehicle temp drop below a set degree for year-round K9 protection.

Systems also include the “No K9 Left Behind” feature which is exclusive to Ace K9 systems and provides an end of shift system monitor which will alert and continue to alert until the door to the K9 has been fully opened to release the K9 and the officer has acknowledged the release of the K9. Thus providing yet another layer of safety to protect against distractions and other instances where a K9 may be accidentally left in a vehicle at the end of shift.

The AceWatchDog application is a another feature of the system that allows 24/7 live system monitoring on smartphones and enables multiple resources such as other handlers and supervisors to monitor the system and receive notifications via their phone to ensure the utmost peace of mind that the K9 is safe.

The K9 vehicle transport system is an insert that is welded from forged steel and welded into the vehicle to provide a safe and secure area for the K9 to travel in. Havis’ award winning K9 inserts are custom designed for each vehicle they serve. These canine vehicle inserts offer rounded corners, large side openings for improved K9 entry and exit as well as easier access for cleaning. Inserts have overhead dome lights, rubber mats, water bowl holders, and integrate with the vehicle’s heat and air system for maximum comfort. K9s are able to stand up, stretch out, or lay down with plenty of room and height; providing for a comfortable and safe ride. The aluminum insert protects the K9s in cases of crash, flip, or roll over. Havis inserts also integrate with ACE K9 technology systems to combine for the best K9 system available.

The Tactical K9 First Aid Field Trauma Kit is military-grade and designed for use by Law Enforcement, Military, Fire, EMS, and Search & Rescue K9 Units. This kit contains specific supplies needed to treat the K-9 for injuries ranging from gunshot and knife wounds to snake bites. The kit provides the necessary tools to address the major traumatic injuries common to K9’s operating in the military and law enforcement environment as well as common K9 emergencies such as bloat, heat injury, and toxic ingestion.

K9 teams face substantial risks on a daily basis. These dogs have been punched, stabbed, poisoned and shot by fleeing suspects. While emergency care is often readily available to the handler, the same cannot be said of the their canine partner. Training officers to administer first aid to their injured canine partner is only part of the solution, equipping them with a K9 tactical first aid trauma kits for use in the field can make a huge difference. Distribution of these kits gives the handlers the means to do just that. In addition, everything in the kit can also be used to treat humans.

Our goal is to raise $8,000 to provide and install this vital equipment.
