Project Paws Alive is a nationwide non-profit raising money to provide protective K9 equipment to Law Enforcement, Fire, Search & Rescue, and Military K-9s. We also provide specialized Pet Oxygen Recovery Mask kits to Fire, Rescue, and EMS in the US. Our mission is to provide combo stab/bullet-protective K9 vests, K9 first aid field trauma kits, K9 cooling vests, K9 heat alarms, and other vital K9 equipment to Law Enforcement, Fire, Search and Rescue, and Military K-9s throughout the US.
Project Paws Alive is an all volunteer 501c3 non-profit and does not get paid. Funds are raised by donations, sponsorships, and fundraisers. All monies go directly to purchasing equipment.
We exist because 92% of all K-9 units and agencies nationwide do not have the ability or funds needed to purchase this vital K9 equipment to protect their K9s. Many K9 units are run solely on donations.
K9 units are typically classified as "non-essential specialty units" nationwide; which means they receive little to no funding and cannot afford the high-dollar protective equipment that can save the lives of the K9s and, in most cases, can also save the officer's life.
Please join us in helping to "Protect The K9s Who Protect Us" nationwide. Consider making a tax-deductible donation or becoming a volunteer at http://ProjectPawsAlive.org/
Animal artist for over 15 years that decided to dedicate my life to painting portraits of working dog (K9) heroes. I only paint recognized military, contractor, SAR, police and PTSD Service dogs, not therapy dogs or family pets. Created the K9 Hero Portrait Project in March of 2013 while completing a portrait of MWD Gabe K153 SSD. During the completion of his portrait, I became aware of several K9's who were either killed in action or gravely injured, all within one week. Although I know working dogs are always faced with danger, it wasn't the events that drove me to create this project, it was the reactions of the handlers that were captured in photos and networked on the web. Each one was completely distraught at the loss or the injury of their K9 partner, who to them, was their family member. That's when I knew that these were the men and women I wanted to paint for. Each painting is donated to the handler, or, in the case of a retired working dog, to their family. Since the project is completely out of pocket, I help fund the program by having commemorative coins minted with the completed portrait on one side. The handler or family receives the first in the series, and the rest are sold to help fund the project and also be used to help donate to other working dog or military PTSD programs.

Author, Adam David Russ and Officer Michael Serio of the Salt Lake City Police K9 Unit in Utah join us to talk about Russ’ book ,"Bloodhound in Blue: The True Tales of Police Dog JJ and His Two-Legged Partner" which highlights the life of 10-year-old K-9 JJ, who worked for the Salt Lake City Police Department with Officer Serio. The book takes you on an amazing journey as you learn how with JJ's ability to sniff out suspects and Serio's apprehension skills, the duo caught murderers, rapists, and drug dealers, often tracking them over fences and through crowded city blocks and dense forests. They also captured one of Utah's Most Wanted. Together the team changed the way police units operate today and both JJ and Officer Serio were awarded the Salt Lake City Officer of the Year Award, an award that Officer Serio has won twice; the only officer in state history to achieve this.

K920 is an “on demand” 3-point shooting challenge launched by OPERATION HAWKEYE to elevate awareness regarding the service and sacrifice of fallen Special Operations forces (SOF) military working dogs and their handlers in honor of U.S. Navy Petty Officer First Class John Douangdara and a brave military dog, a Belgian Malinois named Bart, both of whom were killed on August 6, 2011 when the Taliban shot down their CH-47 Chinook helicopter, call sign EXTORTION 17, in Afghanistan. In addition to Douangdara and Bart, 29 other American warriors died that day, along with seven Afghan commandos and a civilian interpreter, in what remains the largest single-day loss of life in Operation Enduring Freedom, and in the history of U.S. Naval Special Warfare. Douangdara, of South Sioux City, Nebraska, enlisted in February 2003. His initial service school training occurred at Norfolk, Virginia, before he joined the security detachment at Naval Air Station Sigonella, Italy, in June 2003. He later moved to Naval Submarine Base New London, Connecticut in August 2006 before joining his East Coast-based SEAL team in January 2008. Douangdara’s decorations include the Bronze Star with ‘V’ device; Joint Service Commendation Medal with ‘V’ device; Army Commendation Medal; Presidential Unit Citation; Good Conduct Medal; National Defense Service Medal; Afghanistan Campaign Medal; Iraq Campaign Medal; Global War on Terrorism Service Medal; Sea Service Deployment Ribbon; three Overseas Service Ribbons; Rifle Marksmanship Medal and the Pistol Marksmanship Medal.
Last month, Carolyn Dobson, MT-BC, and I were invited to be on a panel following a screening of the documentary, Alive Inside. This documentary is about Dan Cohen, who volunteers in nursing homes and brings iPods to people who have Alzheimers. On today's show, we'll share our experience on the panel and our thoughts about the documentary and the Music and Memory Certification that is based on the iPod project.
K9 Lakota served alongside Officer Travis Fox for less than four years but made remarkable achievements in his short career, among them more than 80 apprehensions, 28 drug seizures, six vehicle seizures, the recovery of stolen property, and the seizure of $60,000. K9 Lakota's career was ended prematurely en route to a home invasion call when Officer Fox and K9 Lakota ended up in a serious car accident. The accident split the car in two, ejecting both the officer and the dog from the car. K9 Lakota was not expected to live but his strong spirit fought on and after four surgeries (with more expected in his future), he is enjoying life in retirement. His work and his will to fight and live have shown his heroic side and he has brought people all over the world together for his cause. His story is now being used to help change laws for Law Enforcement Officer K9s so that they are better protected by their departments in case they are injured in the line of duty. K9 Lakota has been a true hero both in the line of duty and in retirement.
