In the past few years, this organization has raised funds to purchase new K-9 vehicles, sent officers to training seminars, bought useful equipment (for dog and officer) and ever purchased a NEW DOG! If you are looking for a 501 (c3) to get behind personally, or as a business, this group goes above and beyond for the city of Rockford.
