As Fremont Police Canines are retired from service they generally are transferred to the canine handler who worked the canine during their patrol career. The canine Officer Dodson and K9 spends their retired years at home with their handler, continuing their retired life as the family dog. This transfer of ownership brings with it financial responsibility for the canine including food and veterinary care.
To assist with this financial responsibility, the Retired Fremont Police Canine Account was created by the Fremont Police Association, a 501(c)(5) organization. Donations to this fund are not tax deductible but go a long way in helping the handler financially care for the canine during their retired life.
