RKC has assisted both the Raleigh Police Department and
the Wake County Sheriff Department K-9 units in the purchase of trained K9 officer dogs. These are professional
working dogs trained to accommodate varying requirements of law enforcement. These dogs use their keen sense of smell to locate
bombs and drugs, and they are trained to attack on command. Each dog lives with an officer’s host family and routinely
travels with that officer on patrol. In addition to helping with the purchase of the dogs, RKC assists with many of the dogs
veterinary expenses after retirement.
