ABOUT THE SAN RAFAEL POLICE K9 ASSOCIATION

A Police K9 team is an essential function of a police department. Unfortunately, due to budget cuts, the City of San Rafael lost their K9 unit in 2003. The San Rafael Police K9 Association has recently been established to bring back this essential function of our community.

We are reaching out to residents and local businesses asking for financial support. Your donations will help us make San Rafael a safer community by bringing back this essential function.

By donating to the San Rafael Police K9 Association, your contribution is 100 percent tax deductible and your support goes directly to the training and equipment needs of our officers and K9's.

We are looking forward to updating this site with photographs, videos, and news related to our program, so please check back often!

How a K9 unit will help the San Rafael
Police Department and the entire community:


  • Searching for and/or apprehending dangerous criminals
  • Locating missing children and the elderly.
  • Providing back-up to an already depleted force.
  • Being a bridge between the community by hosting demonstrations at schools and other public events.
  • Reducing the availability of narcotics in our community.

The San Rafael Police K9 Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit tax-exempt public charity. The content of this site may not necessarily represent the views of the San Rafael Police Department.
