Spike's K9 Fund set up a terrific fundraiser last weekend: Skydiving for K9s at Skydive Midwest in Sturdevant, Wisconsin. Madison Police ...Department Ofcs. Eric Disch and Chase Lewis took advantage of the beautiful skies and participated (no K9s were launched from planes, just their human handlers!).
Spike's K9 Fund founder Jimmy Hatch welcomed our intrepid officers. A portion of every jump went to support working K9s across the US, providing custom-fit ballistics vests, training, medical expenses and more. Thanks to our adventurous & charitably-minded officers for participating!

Dog of the month K9 Roko is sponsored by a very lovely & generous - but anonymous - sponsor. This private person is motivated to help the but does not want to be thanked publicly.
Police canines are expensive. They cost $15,000 - $16,000 to purchase from certified kennels and it costs at least that for their training throughout their working lives. Add in equipment, vet bills, food costs, kenneling, and a specialized squad car, and we figure it costs about $100,000 for Capital K9s to provide the city of Madison one K9 for its working life.
The service they provide is absolutely invaluable and we are so grateful to all our sponsors, who donate large and small amounts to keep the program functioning.
K9 Roko is worth his weight in gold...he even takes a turn with the paperwork. 🐾

Doc B and Cooper were a huge hit as well. How wonderful to see Cooper looking so fit and healthy after his medical issues last summer. Hope you all enjoyed the baseball game and thanks to Madison Mallards for hosting everyone!
