Emergency Surgery for K-9 Grizzly

Tonight retired K-9 Grizzly is undergoing emergency surgery to remove a mass in his abdomen. K-9 Grizzly is an 8 year old Dutch Shepherd & he honorably served with the Alameda County Sheriff's K-9 Unit until his retirement in February of this year. During his time on duty he helped to apprehend numerous dangerous suspects and worked tirelessly to keep his community safe. K-9 Grizzly also loved getting out in the community & was a star doing demos at schools and at the annual Bay Area Pet Fair.
In retirement he loves a good game of tug with his handler, playing with the two little human siblings he has at home and hanging out with his canine friend Tillee. When he is really good he gets a hamburger patty as a reward! Yum!!
As most do not know, all veterinary costs for retired K-9s are the responsibility of their handler & family. With that being said, Cover Your K-9 is raising funds to help offset Grizzly's emergency care costs. He is good hands with the staff at Ironhorse Vet Care Emergency Hospital in Dublin and we will keep you updated on his progress. We are hoping that he can be back to playing with the kids & eating hamburgers soon. We want to do everything that we can to help K-9 Grizzly get through this and appreciate your help and generosity.

More information about Police and Working K-9 Foundation: The Cover Your K-9 Fund is a project of the Police and Working K-9 Foundation, a non-profit all volunteer organization working to keep California law enforcement K-9 teams covered with safety equipment and emergency medical care. The Cover Your K-9 Fund provides K9 bullet-proof vests, heat alarms for patrol cars & has worked with veterinary specialists to design a K-9 Emergency Medical Course & custom K-9 Trauma Kit. A special Retired K9 Emergency Care Fund is set aside for those heroes with no safety net.

We truly thank you for taking the time to read K-9 Grizzly's story and can't wait to keep you all up to date on his progress!
