Update on donations received in honor of Sgt. Collin Rose

The family of Sgt. Rose publicly asked for donations to be made to Project Paws Alive in lieu of flowers or other gifts. While receiving donations we reached out to Chief Holt to propose providing K9 first aid kits embroidered with a dedication to Sgt Rose. It serves as a great token of remembrance to the K9 team he loved and will help make sure he is never forgotten.

In speaking with Chief Anthony Holt of the Wayne State University Police Department, the proposal was accepted based on the current donation total received. Three K9 First Aid Trauma kits ($350 each) were purchased earlier this week and will be embroidered with a memorial patch like the example shown, and then presented to Chief Holt and the three Wayne State K9 Officers. Details of the presentation will be forthcoming and we hope to have Sgt. Rose’s family present.

The K9 Tactical First Aid Field Trauma Kit is the most complete and versatile professional K9 first aid kit available and is military grade. The kit’s versatility makes it the perfect choice for all working K9s. This kit contains specific supplies needed to treat the dog for injuries ranging from gunshot and knife wounds to snake bites. It includes QuikClot Combat Guaze as recommended by the COTCCC (Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care), and is the only product carried by all branches of the US Military to control life-threatening hemorrhage and traumatic bleeding. Additionally all items in the kit can be used on humans if needed. For more information on the kits please visit our website.

Project Paws Alive is still accepting donations in honor of Sgt. Rose and will continue to use all donations to provide additional protective K9 equipment to the WSU K9 Unit.

All donations are tax-deductible.

If you’d like to make a donation, please use the donate button or click here to be redirected to our secure PayPal donation link.

If you are interested in sponsoring a specific K9 equipment item for the WSU K9 Unit or know a business or group that might like to be a sponsor please contact us at Admin@ProjectPawsAlive.org.

 

 

In Memoriam: Officer Collin Rose

Officer Collin Rose, 29, a Wayne State University K9 Police officer, was shot in the head on 11/22/16 at approximately 6:45 p.m. while on patrol near campus and passed away on 11/23/16.  Rose was investigating possible thefts of navigation systems from cars and SUVs, and was about to speak to someone apparently on a bike. Officer Rose called for back up at 6:31 p.m. Officers who arrived on the scene at 6:34 p.m. found the officer injured on the ground and transported him to Detroit Receiving Hospital. A woman who witnessed the shooting said it happened while Rose was attempting to apprehend someone and heard three shots. Officer Rose was trying to get him to put his arms behind his back. Rose left his two drug sniffing dogs in the vehicle, observing proper police procedure when he approached the suspect to question him. Officer Rose, was a  five-year veteran of the department. The station reported that a $5,000 reward was being offered for the recovery of the gun used in the shooting and was not shot with his own gun. His K9’s names were Clyde and Wolverine.

Deangelo L. Davis, 31, of Detroit is charged with first-degree murder, murder of a police officer, felon in possession of a firearm and two counts of felony firearm, as well as being a habitual offender on 11/25/16. On 12/7/16 Prosecutors dropped charges against him in the killing of Wayne State University Officer Sgt. Collin Rose and eliminated as a suspect after a review of new evidence. A reward of $10,000 is being offered by the ATF for information that helps solve the case.

Officer Rose had previously served with the Richland Police Department. Officer Rose is survived by his fiancee’ and parents and siblings.

Officer Collin Rose – EOW: November 23, 2016.

Volusia County Sheriff K9 Forrest

forest_handler_ellis_killed-line-of-duty-112216K9 Forrest of the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office in DeLand, FL was shot and killed while attempting an apprehension of a fugitive near Vann Park in Deltona, Florida.

Deputies were in the area searching for a wanted fugitive after receiving a tip that he was staying at a home there. While on scene a dirt bike drove by their location recklessly several times. As the deputies spoke to occupants of the home they heard a subject jumping fences nearby and observed the dirt bike abandoned.

The subject was located by a helicopter crew running into a nearby wooded area. A perimeter was established and K9 Forrest was deployed into the wooded area to located the subject. The man opened fire on Forrest and deputies as Forrest attempted an apprehension. Forrest was struck by the gunfire and then transported to Deltona Animal Hospital where he died from the wound.

The subject was shot and captured after a twenty hour search.

Giving Tuesday – Helping Working K9s

GT-K9What is #GivingTuesday? We have a day for giving thanks. We have two shopping days for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Please join us and be a part of a new nationwide movement to draw awareness to nonprofits.

Today we ask you to consider purchasing one of our K9 Hero Dogs or making a donation to help provide vital protective equipment to Law Enforcement, Fire, Search & Rescue, and Military K-9s. K9 Units are typically classified as non-essential teams and therefore receive little or no budget. Many are run solely on donations received from nonprofits such as ours, and many of them cannot accept direct donations. They rely on us for items such as K9 first aid kits, bullet and stab-protective K9 vests, K9 cooling vests, K9 heat alarms and more.

Picture1K9 Hero Dogs can be purchased directly on our PPA Shop page and are tax-deductible.

Donations can be made online via our Donate buttons or mailed to our office at Project Paws Alive, 1911 Grayson Highway, Suite 8-158, Grayson, GA 30017.  All donations are tax-deductible as we are registered 501c3 nonprofit and we do participate in corporate matching and grant campaigns.

For other ways to join us, volunteer or help please see our “How You Can Help” page.

On behalf of the Law Enforcement, Fire, Search & Rescue, and Military K-9s benefiting from your support, I wish to extend my sincerest appreciation and invite you to stay connected with us to watch how your contributions are having life-saving effects on the working K9s in your community.

Gwinnett County Police K-9 Unit Fundraiser at Gwinnett Center Pet Expo

10325536_423731231097162_3590583253400747778_nProject Paws Alive, a local nonprofit, is hosting a fundraiser for the Gwinnett County Police K-9 Unit during the Atlanta Pet Expo at the Gwinnett Center. The Police K9s will be at the Project Paws Alive booth throughout the day and a special K-9 unit demo will take center stage.

Donations will be accepted at the Project Paws Alive booth and there will be various fundraiser items available from t-shirts to stuffed police dogs, as well as several raffles for gift baskets sponsored by Kong Dog Toys, Pooch N Paws Pet Boutique, and Taj Ma Hound Pet Bakery.

The purpose of the fundraiser is to purchase protective equipment for the K9s including; custom K-9 bullet & stab-protective vests, specialized K-9 first aid field trauma kits, and military-grade K9 cooling vests. The Gwinnett County Police K-9 Unit consists of 10 K-9s along with their officer handlers who serve on both the patrol and SWAT units. The K-9s specialize in narcotics, tracking, detection, and patrol work.

The fundraising event will be held at the Project Paws Alive booth during the Atlanta Pet Expo at the Gwinnett Center located at 6400 Sugarloaf Parkway, Duluth, Georgia 30097 on Saturday, November 8, 2014 from 10am to 6pm. Admission and parking are free. Pets are permitted and there will be entertainment, contests, food, and activities throughout the day as well as over 100 additional pet related vendors in attendance. The event is indoors and is climate controlled.

K-9 Units are typically classified as non-essential or specialty units and therefore do not often have the ability to purchase these costly items. The majority of public service agencies cannot accept direct donations. Project Paws Alive accepts donations and fundraises to provide vital K-9 equipment to agencies in need. Our goal is to raise $25,000 to provide this protective K9 equipment to all the K-9s on the unit.

GwinnettK9GACan’t attend the event, but would like to support the fundraiser? Tax deductible donations are welcome via our website at www.ProjectPawsAlive.org or can be mailed to Project Paws Alive Inc. at 1911 Grayson Hwy, #8-158, Grayson, GA 30017.

Milton Police Department K9 Unit Fundraiser

DSC_0005Project Paws Alive is conducting a fundraising effort with Milton resident Claudine Wilkins to raise money to provide vital equipment for the Milton Police K9 Unit in Milton, GA. The equipment needed for the unit consists of a K-9 Ballistic Vest, K-9 First Aid Field Trauma kit, K-9 Cooling Vest, K9 Working Dog boots, a K9 Pro vehicle heat alarm system, and Pet Oxygen Mask kits.

The Milton Police K-9 Unit consists of new K-9 Kyro along with his partner, Officer Christopher Ward. The K-9 specializes in full patrol work.

The K-9 ballistic protective vests are bullet-proof and stab-proof containing level IIA ballistic protection and level III spike protection which exceeds the current National Institute of Justice (NIJ) 06 regulations. These vests are cut from the same Kevlar® bulletproof cloth as their human partners, covering all the vital organs. These vests help protect the K-9s from gun shots, stabbings, and other blunt force trauma such as being kicked, punched, or beaten with a weapon or other dangerous object while on duty. These protective vests are a vital piece of equipment to protect law enforcement K-9s.

k9-AEach K-9 body armor vest donated by Project Paws Alive is custom manufactured using the latest technology and materials in order to fit the body shape and size of each K-9 officer. The vests are designed so that the K-9s can wear the vests the entire time that they are working with their assigned handlers. They offer outstanding ballistic protection with ease of movement, breathe-ability and cooling comfort in a rigorously field-tested vest.

The K-9 Tactical First Aid Field Trauma Kit is designed for use by Law Enforcement, Military, Fire, EMS, and Search & Rescue K-9 Units. This kit contains specific supplies needed to treat the K-9 for injuries ranging from gunshot and knife wounds to snake bites.

K-9 teams face substantial risks on a daily basis. These dogs have been punched, stabbed, poisoned and shot by fleeing suspects. Those who work in Search & Rescue, Apprehension and Explosive Detection teams have an increased risk of injury due to extreme conditions, poisoning, or explosion. Tracking teams that spend hours in the woods and remote areas do not have access to immediately available emergency care.

k9 traumaWhile 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 K-9 tactical first aid trauma kit for use in the field can make a huge difference.

Distribution of these kits will give the handlers the means to do just that. In addition, everything in the kit can also be used to treat and/or the save the life of the human handler.

The K-9 cooling vests are specifically designed for police, military, search and rescue K-9s that work in high heat conditions. They use advanced Phase Change Cooling Material to maintain a constant cool temperature of 58F around the K-9. The outer material is 100% light-weight cotton. The Phase Change Material or PCM is a non-toxic chemical that freezes at 58F and stays at that temperature for 2-4 hrs. It works by absorbing heat away from the body. It is not a cold vest, it is a cool vest, and is designed to keep the K-9 cool and comfortable, not cold therefore there is no discomfort. There is no ice burn, condensation or fluctuating temperatures with PCM, like you would have with an ice vest. PCM is not water based, it is a carbon based liquid and it is 25% lighter than water. PCM is also safe for the K-9s as it is non-toxic, non-carcinogenic, and non-flammable. These vests are a must for K-9s that often have to work in extremely hot weather and fit comfortably under ballistic vests when needed.

KK-K9-HP-5010Every year working dogs die from being left in unattended and overheated vehicles. Police and Fire vehicles typically leave the car’s AC running if they are not in the vehicle with their K-9. These K-9s dutifully protect their communities and handlers without hesitation and do it happily. But what happens if the AC starts to push out hot air? What happens if the engine shuts off? The horrific reality is that the vehicle will overheat rapidly and the K-9 will be trapped inside with no way to get out. Tragically, K-9s die from these heat-stroke related accidents every year.

DSC_0032-001Project Paws Alive has partnered with AceK9 to offer their top of the line vehicle heat alarm system called the “Hot n’ Pop Pro” through exclusive pricing. The AceK9 Hot n’ Pop Pro unit monitors vital components including temperature sensors and vehicle battery voltage. The information is shown on a 32-character backlit alphanumeric display. If an alarm condition is detected, the unit will activate a S.O.S. Horn Honk signal, siren and light-bar activation and dual window drop. This system not only makes automatic corrective actions to the heat, it audibly and visually alerts everyone nearby. As a last measure, the system will open the vehicle door allowing the K-9 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 K-9 protection.

DSC_0014Project Paws Alive will include the “No K9 Left Behind” add-on to each heat alarm system donated. The “No K9 Left Behind” option is exclusive to AceK9 and provides an end of shift system monitor which will alert and continue to alert until the door to the K-9 has been fully opened to release the K9 and the officer has acknowledged the release of the K-9. Thus providing yet another layer of safety to protect against distractions and other instances where a K-9 may be accidentally left in a vehicle at the end of shift.

Please consider donating or becoming a sponsor today. Our goal is to raise $6,000 to provide this vital equipment to the Milton Police Department K-9 Unit. All donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible.

Hero Officer to start new K9 Unit at South Londonderry Police Department; Donations Needed

The South Londonderry Township Police Department has announced that they have begun the process of implementing a K-9 program. Patrolman Nick Ague will be heading up the program as the Handler. The recent attention garnered from Patrolman Ague’s involvement in helping an injured dog resulted in an overwhelming response and support for a K-9 program in the community.

It is South Londonderry’s intention that the K-9 would be primarily used to benefit their Township, but additionally that Patrolman Ague and his dog would be made available to assist nearby Municipalities upon request.

The South Londonderry Township Police Department is now reaching out for help to get the K-9 program off of the ground. They estimate the total minimum cost for the initial implementation is $18,000.00, with total outfitting being approximately $25,000.00.

ABC News and local News 21 coverage of Officer Ague’s story can be viewed in the two videos below.

Zjk2YjkzN2EyNGFj_1084The costs going primarily to obtaining and training a K-9 and the remainder for K-9 equipment and K-9 vehicle equipment.

Project Paws Alive, a 501c non-profit that provides K-9 equipment, has been selected to help provide $10,000 worth of equipment to outfit the K9 unit and put in place all necessary items to enable the K9 unit to get started right away. Amongst the items needed are; a K9 vehicle transport insert (kennel) with door panes, window guards and interior light, a K9 vehicle hot n’ pop pro system with the No K9 Left Behind technology, a K9 bullet & stab-proof vest, a K9 cooling vest, a K9 Trauma First Aid kit, a Police K9 harness and leash.

Capture“We heard the news as soon as it happened,” said Cheryl Allen, President of Project Paws Alive. “We recently equipped many K9 agencies local to South Londonderry so we received calls as soon as Nick’s amazing act starting going viral. When they announced Nick would be starting up a brand new K9 unit we knew we wanted to reach out and assist. It’s what we do, and we want to help make this happen for Nick as quickly as possible. Things happen for a reason and he’s already shown that he’s simply meant to be a K9 handler. We’re very excited to be assisting the South Londonderry Police Dept. and honored to be able to help Nick out.”

1204691512Donations have already been made to the South Londonderry Police to acquire a new K9 and train both the new K9 and handler. Project Paws Alive has been tasked with fund-raising for the equipment. Without the proper equipment the K9 unit can’t move forward.

Please help Officer Nick Ague get the necessary equipment he needs to start South Londonderry Police Department’s K-9 Unit. Donations and Sponsorships are needed.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 to provide this vital equipment. All donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible.
