Southern Pines Police Department K9 Unit Fundraiser

Project Paws Alive has kicked-off its fundraising effort to provide vital protective equipment for the Southern Pines Police Department K9 Unit in North Carolina. The equipment goal for the unit consists of K9 Ballistic vests, K9 first aid field trauma kits, Narcan kits, military grade K9 cooling vests, Kevlar boots, oxygen mask kits, and state of the art vehicle K9 monitoring and alert systems.

The Southern Pines K9 Unit consists of 3 K9s along with their officer handlers; Officer Dean and K9 Titan, Officer Embler and K9 Ivy, and Officer Powers and K9 Jaxx. The K9s specialize in narcotics, tracking, detection, and patrol work.

Now these four-legged officers need the same level of protective equipment their human partners have to keep them safe while on duty.

The K9 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) 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 K9s 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 K9s.

Each K9 body armor vest donated by Project Paws Alive is custom sized per K9 and manufactured using the latest technology and materials in order to fit the body shape and size of each K9 officer. The vests are designed so that the K9s 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. They are the lightest-weight K9 vests currently available.

The Tactical K9 First Aid Field Trauma Kit with Combat Gauze is a military-grade kit designed for use by Law Enforcement, Military, Fire, and Search & Rescue K9 Units. This kit contains specific supplies needed to treat the K9 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 law enforcement environment as well as common K9 emergencies such as heat injury and toxic ingestion.

Constructed of rugged 500D Cordura with self-repairing zippers and silent 550 cord pulls, the kit is also water-resistant. The MOLLE style webbing and Infrared Signature Reduction make this kit the superior solution whether on daily patrol, tactical missions, explosives details, covert operations, or extended search and tracking purposes.

K9 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.

While emergency care is often readily available to the handler, the same cannot be said of their canine partner. Equipping them with a K9 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 a human.

K9 NARCAN kits will stop an accidental overdose should a K9 come in contact with an opioid on duty. K9s are just the latest victims in a growing opioid epidemic that has spread across the United States. K9 units searching for illicit drugs are often exposed to lethal amounts of opioids, including Fentanyl. The frightening strength of some of these drugs, particularly Fentanyl, present a new danger to K9s.

NARCAN is a drug designed to immediately reverse the effects of opioids like Heroin, Fentanyl and Carfentanil by blocking the body’s opiate receptors. NARCAN reverses overdoses with few side effects. It has long been used by doctors and ambulance crews. A NARCAN dose can successfully stabilize a K9 at the scene, who can then be transported to an animal hospital for further treatment and observation.

Fentanyl is so lethal that a tiny amount the size of a grain of rice can kill a K9 or human.

Our K9 NARCAN kit includes two separate nasal spray doses and a NARCAN carry pouch which can be worn on the K9 Handlers duty belt or vest to ensure constant and immediate access when needed. Two doses are included because field reports have shown that often times more than one dose is required to be administered on-scene to K9s.

The specialized carry pouches are made of rugged nylon that sheds moisture. The interior is poly insulation which provides protection from extreme temperature to protect the NARCAN from the weather and elements to ensure the NARCAN is at full strength.

The ACE K9 vehicle systems are designed to monitor, detect, and protect the K9s at all times even when the handler is away from the vehicle. Our maximum level system package is comprised of a Hot n’Pop Pro System, Ace Watchdog Smart Phone technology package, No K9 Left behind alert system, and engine stall, carbon, smoke, and fire detection.

The 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 system has unlimited monitoring range through the internet to anywhere in the world. This application allows K9 Units to receive warning notifications before the danger and alarms happen so they can take action to ensure the K9 is safe.

For full details on all the K9 equipment items included in this fundraiser please visit our equipment web page at https://projectpawsalive.org/the-equipment/.

Most Law Enforcement K9 Units do not have the budget to purchase these life-saving pieces of equipment. A majority of these units are funded solely by donations.

Please consider donating or becoming a sponsor today and help protect the K9s that protect you.

Our goal is to raise $25,000 to provide this vital equipment.

Pawtucket Police K9 Unit Fundraiser

Pawtucket Police K9Project Paws Alive has kicked-off its fundraising effort to provide vital protective equipment for the Pawtucket Police Department K9 Unit in Rhode Island. The equipment goal for the unit consists of K9 first aid field trauma kits, Narcan kits, military grade K9 cooling vests, Kevlar boots, oxygen mask kits, and vehicle K9 monitoring and alert systems.

The Pawtucket Police Department K9 Unit consists of 4 K9s along with their human partners. Collectively they make up the first K9 unit the department has had in almost ten years. All the K9s have been trained for multipurpose use.

The two Patrol Teams consist of Officer James Leach and Magno, a 15-month old Belgian Malinois, and Officer Gregory Malo and Argo, a 14 month old Czech Shepard. Magno and Argo’s focus will be on patrolling, narcotics detection, building and area searches, crowd control, and suspect apprehension.

The Tracking Team consists of Officer William Figura and Neko, a 7-month old Bloodhound. Neko and Officer Figura are a specialized team, focusing on search and rescue operations which includes searching out missing persons, finding evidence, and locating suspects. Neko is the only certified Police Bloodhound in Southern New England. Detective Trevor Lefebvre, is partnered with a new type of Police Dog, Watson a 10-month old Golden Doodle. Watson is a compassion dog. His job is to provide comfort to crime victims who have experienced extremely traumatic events. He is the first full time Police Compassion animal in Rhode Island.

Now these four-legged officers need the same level of protective equipment their human partners have to keep them safe while on duty.

The Tactical K9 First Aid Field Trauma Kit with Combat Gauze is a military-grade kit designed for use by Law Enforcement, Military, Fire, and Search & Rescue K9 Units.

VCA Animal Hospitals donates $20,000 to Project Paws Alive for Police K9s

VCA Ohio Region C7 & Specialty Hospitals Region CS4 collected donations by encouraging clients to round up their transaction amounts to the nearest dollar or donate online. The campaign raised just over $20,000 to support Project Paws Alive who is dedicated to providing protective K9 safety equipment to underfunded Law Enforcement K9s units nationwide. This donation will enable Project Paws Alive to continue our important work in communities, protecting law enforcement K9s with such items as bulletproof vests, military grade first aid kits with narcan, specialized cooling vests, and hot n’pop vehicle heat alarm systems.

“A donation of this size is significant for us,” commented Cheryl Allen, President at Project Paws Alive. “It costs $1,400 per vest, $350 per first aid kit, and at least $6,000 for a complete vehicle heat alarm system and the nationwide demand for equipment by underfunded K9 units is much higher than the supply of funds so this donation will absolutely go to good use.”

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.

Project Paws Alive has kicked off a fundraiser for K9 Grim of the Madison Heights (MI) Police K9 Unit.

K9 Grim needs a K9 vehicle alert system 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.

Please help us fund K9 Grim’s vehicle alarm system by making a tax-deductible donation today.

Our goal is to raise $1,400 to provide this vital equipment.
