Back the K9
This campaign focuses on supporting the K9’s who work for us tirelessly and in a self sacrificing manner. The foundation wants to protect the K9 Heroes who protect
& serve our communities. We raise funds to provide NC K9’s with emergency life saving equipment; K9 Ballistic Vest, Hot n Pop system, K9 Trauma kit & K9 Naloxone Kit.
K9 Buddy Bags aka K9 Trauma Kits
Since the Military, Police, Fire and Search & Rescue K9 Handlers often act as the first responder for their animal, time, as well as the first aid supplies that are on hand are critical. The BUDDY BAG is equipped with all of its contents designed specifically for a dogs needs. The main feature of the BUDDY BAG is a specialized breathing apparatus that is formed to fit any dogs muzzle. The specialized cone-shaped oxygen mask allows for a secure fit on the dogs face. Many animals receive burns through the course of an explosion, fire or accident, therefore specialized burn sheets, bandages, rinsing saline and protective restraints are also included in the BUDDY BAG.
Naloxone Kit for K9’s
The Reversal kit will include a prefilled syringe of Naloxone, along with a nasal atomizer and NarCase for storage. “Why do our Working K9’s need this opioid reversal drug?” Narcotics Detection and Arson Dogs are not looking for drugs and evidence of accelerant use with their eyes and feeling with their fingers; they are literally breathing it in and inhaling it. Inhaling powerful opioids can be deadly, so officers/handlers have a new tool to protect their four-legged partners: naloxone, a drug that has already been used for years to reverse overdoses in humans.
The HOT-N-POP PRO® combines the features of our two best-selling canine safety products into one easy to use temperature alarm and door popper system. This innovative unit monitors vital components including temperature sensors and vehicle battery voltage and shows the information on a 32-character backlit alphanumeric display. Under alarm conditions, the unit activates an S.O.S. horn honk signal, siren, light-bar activation and dual window drop to immediately equalize the internal temperature of the vehicle. The door popper feature releases the K-9 from the vehicle by remote control worn in a holster. In addition, the special Door Pop Stopper™ feature disables the K-9 Door Popper® when the vehicle is in gear.
