K9CS, Inc. (a/k/a K-9 CRIME STOPPERS ) is a 501(c)(3) public charity whose mission is to raise, train and donate quality K-9s to communities in need. We aim to advise and consult Police Dog and Search & Rescue Handlers and Administrators, problem solve canine behavioral issues, and advocate for the importance of publicly supported and knowledgeable K-9 Teams in every municipality. K9CS has donated training time and fully trained K9s locally and down to the nation’s borders for over 20 years. While we focus on techniques primarily for Police or Search and Rescue Dogs, our charity recognizes the need for animal advocacy groups and encourages partnerships that span across species. Our area of concentration is primarily in the Greater Hartford region but our donated K-9 CRIME STOPPER Puppies have demonstrated their remarkable work all over the country. They were deployed at 9/11, are used to help stop the illegal drug trades along our nation’s borders, and with the horrific actions of terrorists in the world and on our own soil, our devoted and committed dogs and instruction will be increasingly in demand.
