Given the tremendous risks that service K9s face, including gunshot wounds, trauma from perpetrator assaults, adverse effects of drug interdictions, and injuries from line-of-duty occurrences, they are always at risk of incurring medical bills in the thousands or tens of thousands of dollars. The K9 Heroes Total Health Program seeks to eliminate this risk.
Saint Francis Veterinary Center is the official animal hospital for a number of police departments in South Jersey, and several dozen K9s are registered in the program.
