National Memorial for Police Dogs
What is The National K9 Memorial UK?
The National K9 Memorial was founded by Paul Nicholls, a recently retired Essex police dog handler. The project has received the backing of many high profile people, including the former Policing Minister. We are a small team and receive no government funding for the project.
What is The National K9 Memorial UK doing?
Our main aim is to erect a statue, designed by sculptor John Doubleday, to remember all police dogs that are serving across the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
What else does the National K9 Memorial do?
The K9 Memorial is responsible
Is this the official donation page?
Yes. We have moved from indiegogo. This is now the Memorial's official donation site, and place to buy merchandise. You can check our Facebook and Twitter to see this is the genuine donation page. This page has been set up by Paul Nicholls, the Memorial's founder.
Why should there be a Memorial?
Around the world, Police Dogs are remembered in various ways. There are some magnificent memorials dedicated to them. However, the UK has a plaque within the Police Memorial Garden. We think they deserve more recognition.
Where does the money go? How much do you take for yourselves?
100 percent of all donations goes directly to the Memorial. There are no deductions made for staffing (everyone is a volunteer) or merchandise.
Is The National K9 Memorial a charity?
In May 2018, The National K9 Memorial UK submitted paperwork to the Charity Commission to register as a charity in England and Wales. We expect the process to be completed during the summer. The goals of the K9 Memorial are as follows:
1) To recognise and commemorate the contributions of police Dogs to the community.
2) To educate the public in matters pertaining to the contributions of police Dogs to the community.
3) For the public benefit to promote the efficiency, care and training of police Dogs.
4) To advance such charitable purposes (according to the law of England and Wales) as the trustees see fit from time to time.
