Houston Police K9s
This Thursday, April 23rd, Houston Police Chief Charles A. McClelland, Jr. and the Houston Police Foundation will host a special evening with the Houston Police K9 Unit. Take this opportunity to meet the officers and their K9 partners, while enjoying complimentary appetizers and happy hour cocktails. The event will kick off at 5 pm and will offer a chance for Houstonians to step forward and sponsor an HPD K9. To ensure the K9 Unit is able to operate at its current capacity, HPD’s Foundation is seeking financial support from corporations, organizations, and individuals to offset the unit’s operating costs for the 23 dogs. Accordingly, we are requesting that you consider sponsoring a K9 partner. The tax deductible $3,500 sponsorship will cover all of the operating expenses for one K9 member for one year.
Meet the officers and K9s at The Republic Smokehouse and Saloon, 1910 Bagby at Pierce in Mid-town from 5-7pm on April 23rd, and find more information at www.houstonpolicefoundation.org or you can call or email the department to RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 713-651-3122.
About the Houston Police Foundation
The Houston Police Foundation strives to promote awareness, enhance safety, and improve performance within the Houston Police Department by encouraging citizen involvement and support in making Houston a safer city for all.
The Houston Police Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c) (3) corporation formed by local business leaders to support projects of the Houston Police Department. Donations made by individuals and companies fund special programs, officer safety, training, equipment, and new technology — none of which would be feasible under the City budget. Approximately 96% of HPD’s annual budget goes to pay officers and other department personnel.
