Last week the Rockford Police Department shared the big news that their K-9 Unit has been nominated to receive a grant from Aftermath Cares, and now the time has come for us to help them win it.


was founded to showcase, support, and reward the unique contributions made by K9 units across the country and, indirectly, to recognize and support the communities that we both serve. The month-long contest awards grants, up to $20,000 in total grants, to new or established K9 programs for maintenance, safety equipment, or officer training.


We only have until November 3 to submit our votes, but we can vote for Rockford one time each day, so we best get busy!
