AKC Reunite, the largest nonprofit pet microchip identification and recovery service provider in the nation, recently announced the donation of $526,500 to K-9 units throughout the country through its AKC Reunite Adopt a K-9 Cop matching grant program.
Six Oklahoma police departments received grants, including the Tulsa Police Department and the Roland Police Department.
These donations help police departments throughout the United States purchase K-9 police dogs. Many of the police dogs acquired are used as patrol dogs as well as detection dogs, helping to locate narcotics, explosives and evidence.
