Cover Your K9

Submitted By Fremont PD

This Saturday, June 30 and Sunday, July 1, the Fremont Police K9 Unit will be participating in the fourth Annual "Cover Your K9" fund-raiser at Pet Food Express - 39010 Paseo Padre Parkway (Raley's Shopping Center).

How can you participate? Visit any one of the 44 Northern California Pet Food Express stores this weekend, June 30th or July 1st, during regular store hours and purchase a dog wash token. Tokens are $15 and 100% of the sales over the two days will go directly to help K9 Teams in Northern California. So... you get a clean dog and get to help law enforcement K9s at the same time! Even better, you can buy all the tokens you need for the whole year this weekend and 100% of the proceeds will go to support K9s.

Would you like to meet our K9s? Two Fremont Police K9 Teams will be at the Fremont Pet Food Express store from 12 p.m. - 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Other Bay Area K9 teams will be at their local Pet Food Express stores throughout the weekend.

Cover Your K9 is a non-profit organization and its board of directors is made up of current and former California K9 handlers and volunteers who help provide customized bullet-proof vests and vehicle "heat alarms" for police patrol cars. Additionally, the group provides free emergency medical training, free K9 first aid kits and other specialized equipment to keep our hardworking police dogs protected while they are at work protecting us. The Fremont Police K9 Unit recently received two free customized K9 bulletproof vests (valued at over $5000) from the Cover Your K9 organization.
