Donate Today To Help Us Protect Our K9's
Post 129 wants to help protect the K9 officers of Jacksonville Beach the same way our troops and civilian law enforcement officers are protected — by providing our working K9s with much-needed Kevlar vests. You can help us keep our working K9s safe from harm by donating on our website or participating in one of the upcoming fundraisers.
 
Despite the huge investment of time and money spent training these K9s — to say nothing of the emotional investment of each dog’s handler — providing the protection they need is a challenge for cash-strapped law enforcement agencies.  It’s not that they don’t care, it’s just an economic reality.
 
At Post 129, we care and so do lots of fellow animal lovers like you. That’s why we’re pooling our resources to protect these working local K9s who so willingly give up their lives to save the lives of others.
 
Please join us in this effort.
