•The National Police Dog Foundation is very pleased to announce the availability of another 50 (12-month health insurance) K-9 Health Insurance Grants. They are now accepting applications.
In 2017 they launched their K-9 Health Insurance Fund, which was established from an initial donation by Petplan Pet Insurance. The fund is supported by designated gifts from the public to the National Police Dog Foundation and a $50 donation from Petplan for each new pet insurance policy booked by the public using the campaign code NPDF10 at https://nationalpolicedogfoundation.org/petplan/. Pet parents who use the code can also receive a 10% discount on their new policy.
The purpose of the fund is to offer grants to law enforcement K-9 units, ensuring the continued well-being of the K-9s.
Petplan’s support of the K-9 Health Insurance Fund, and their passion for improving the quality of life and access to essential veterinary care for K-9s, is the driving force and the major sponsor of the fund.
In 2017 they were only able to offer 5 grants. Thanks to Petplan and your donations, earlier this year they granted 50 health insurance policies, and now are offering another 50 grants to pay for 12 months of K-9 medical insurance. The grants are limited to 1-4-year-old K-9s and a maximum of two grants will be granted to each agency.
This is the season of giving. They need your support to be able to continue to offer grants that will keep your local K-9s healthy, on-the-job and ready to protect you.
Grant application deadline for these 50 (12-month health insurance) grants is October 26th, 2018. No applications will be accepted after this date.

Madison Square Garden in New York City has always hosted the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, where a plethora of dogs come from far and wide along with their owners in order to compete. The dog show has pups of all shapes, sizes, and personalities, but there was one beagle pup named Uno who became a crowd favorite and was able to capture the hearts of everyone watching. Uno was special because he was so much more than just a show dog; he was kind, playful, and a truly lovable pup. Everyone watching the dog show and all of the fans were able to easily imagine him being their dog because of his wonderfully unique personality.
Ch. K-Run’s Park Me In First, also known as Uno was a 15-inch beagle from Belleville, Illinois, who won Best in Show in the 2008 Westminster Kennel Club dog show. He was the first beagle to claim the top prize at Westminster and the first beagle to win the hound group since 1939.
Sadly, Uno recently passed away at the age of thirteen from cancer. He was loved, and he lived a happy life on a ranch in Austin, Texas. The all-American dog named Uno will never be forgotten, he will always be in our hearts.
