    Organization Mission

    Crime is ever-changing in our communities. For law enforcement K9 teams to effectively manage that crime to protect us, they must also change with the times. Unfortunately, in many cases, financial budgets are extremely limited, especially in the K9 departments. As a result, handlers and their K9s often lack advanced training and exposure to potential threats, until actually facing them, lack the proper equipment needed to best perform their duties, and, even worse, lack the funding for premier veterinarian care in the event of sustained injuries, resulting in untimely K9 lives lost. With your partnership through donations, Irondog K9 International identifies K9s and their departments to provide for their needs in these 3 key areas: Training & Education, Equipment, and funding for on-duty injury veterinarian bills.
