Whether they are detecting narcotics, alerting their handlers to explosives, apprehending criminals, or recovering evidence, the VPD’s Police Service Dogs are true canine heroes.
Responding to over 7,000 calls for service a year, it takes a tremendous amount of training and resources to keep these furry partners at their optimal performance.
The Vancouver Police Foundation is proud to support the VPD’s Canine Unit with the help of generous dog lovers like you. From providing lifesaving tools like ballistic vests to providing Canada’s most advanced training facility, the Vancouver Police Foundation has helped the Canine Unit with purchases and acquisitions that fall outside of the VPD’s yearly operating budget.
There are several ways you can join us in supporting the VPD’s Police Service Dogs:
Symbolically adopt a member of the VPD Canine team. Adoption Kits make unique gifts and directly support the Foundation’s efforts to build safer communities.
