Dear Friends of Capital K9s,

With heavy hearts, we have decided to cancel our “Sunday Funday” and Dog Paddle fundraising events this summer. We know how much you look forward to participating in these events — please know we were excited about hosting them and supporting the MPD K9 Unit with you! These cancellations are being made with the best interests of our community in mind.

Over the past several months, we remained hopeful we might adapt and restructure our events to keep participants safe and healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, as new data became available about COVID-19 activity growing in Dane County, we realized we cannot ensure risk-free interactions. We hope you understand that putting a hold on in-person events is the most responsible course we can take this year. We know it won’t be the same, but we hope to organize some virtual fundraising and outreach events in the near future.

We may not be gathering together in person this year, but our MPD K9 Unit will continue serving and protecting you throughout the greater Madison area! Thank you for your understanding and your continuing support of our two- and four-legged officers.
