The story of each k9 was heartbreaking and I think
there should also be a simple list that also shows the ones who served and
retired as well so that there is a positive list too.
If you had T shirts for your fund raisers I think they would sell well I know I would buy one and it's possible that a local company would donate the shirts or at least offer a substantial discount for your cause, it couldn't hurt to ask around, Good luck.

I am so excited to have the opportunity to begin a humane education club on the campus of the new high school in Anthem known as Boulder Creek. The students of this club look forward to working for the sake of this memorial and hopefully provide a donation that can assist in that process. The Canine unit is very dear to their heart as many of these students plan on working with animals in the future. God bless the K-9 Unit and all of those that have passed on.

My father was the handler of JOS who passed a few years
ago and I am so thankful that there will finally be a memorial set up for these
fantastic animals. Not many people know or understand what they do and have to
go thru and how important they are. They do so many things that help protect us
and dont think twice about stepping into danger. They are proud and full of
courage and should be remembered as such and not forgotten.
Thank you again.

I want to thank the staff at aleca and all the people who have given to this worthy effort. I also want to say thank you to all the Officers past and present who have been and are K-9 handlers. Your dedication to helping the public and the extra effort that is involved in being a handler. The extra that the public never sees is known to me. As a handler for Scottsdale Healthcare I know the joy of having my K-9 partner. I wish I could do more to pay tribute to the heroes that the dogs are. Added: December 29, 2004
Great site! This is a good way to honor our fallen partners. I will keep donating every chance I get. Thanks Added: January 12, 2005

money to help our fallen officers..

The site and the Memorial are an outstanding tribute to those in the law enforcement agencies that work the hardest and receive the least recognition. That being the K9's themselves. No other partner will so willingly or so rapidly give his/her life so that partner may live.

It breaks my heart every time I hear about a police dog killed in the line of duty. I have a Belgium Malinois at home named King that would do anything for my family; especially make us laugh. "RJ" and his partner are in our prayers.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Officer Hanania and
all who knew and loved his fallen partner R.J. - Rest in Peace R.J. - You are a
hero to all of us.

I SPENT 20 YEARS IN THE US AIR FORCE AND 14.5 IN SECURITY POLICE. A K-9 TEAM IS A PARTNERSHIP OF LOVE AND DETERMINATION TO BEING A SINGLE SELF. THE TRUST AND LOVE THAT EACH SHARE BETWEEN ONE ANOTHER CAN NEVER BE BROKEN. AS THE ANNIVERSARY OF 9-11 APPROACHES, I REFLECT ON OFFICER KIM OF THE PROT AUTHORITY POLICE WHOSE CONCERN WAS TO FIND HIS PARTNER ALONG WITH THE OTHER REQUIREMENTS AT HAND. I WORKED KENNEL SUPPORT AT ANDREWS AND BOLLING AFB AND MY BEST FRIENDS ON A MIDNIGHT SHIFT WERE RAMBO, CHIEF, AND BOTH OF THE CRAZY WHITE SHEPHERD MAXES. GOD BLESS AND PROTECT ALL OF THE TEAMS ALWAYS.
