Established in 2018, the primary mission of The Manchester Association of Police K-9’s (MAPK-9) is to provide financial assistance for the proper retirement care of Manchester Police K-9’s as well as burial and memorial of fallen K-9’s. MAPK-9 is an official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and registered Charitable Organization with the State of New Hampshire.
Manchester Police K-9’s embody the true meaning of loyalty, duty and selfless service. Our K-9’s dedicate their lives to the service of the Citizens of Manchester. These four-legged officers are deployed into some of the most dangerous situations that any police officer would want to face, and do so repeatedly over the course of their careers.
The K-9’s selfless service comes at a cost. During many years of duty our K-9’s are subject to serious injuries, violent assaults, accidents, strains, tears, traumatic stress and constant wear and tear on their body that follow them into their retirement years.
Upon their retirement, the handler and their family accept full financial responsibility for the K-9 and their care. The mission of MAPK-9 is to help provide financial support to our retired K-9’s so they can live a well-deserved, healthy and enjoyable retirement.
MAPK-9 gladly accepts donations that will be used to support and care our K-9 heroes. Donations are welcomed through our website at www.mapk9603.org. Please follow us on Facebook (Manchester Association of Police K9’s) and Instagram (@mapk9603).
