RKC has assisted the Raleigh Police Department’s
K-9 unit in the purchase of eight trained police dogs. These are professional working dogs trained to accommodate varying
requirements of law enforcement. They use their keen sense of smell to locate bombs and drugs, and they also are trained to
attack on command. Each dog lives with an officer’s host family and routinely travels with him/her on patrol. In addition
to helping with the purchase of the dogs, RKC assists with many of the dogs veterinary expenses after retirement.
