Spokane Valley Police Chief VanLeuven, Spokane County Sheriff Lieutenant Sherar, Spokane County Sheriff Deputy Kullman and K9 Deacon thank Carla Blazek for raising funds to purchase K9 Deacon’s Patrol-SWAT vest.

K9 Support NW was founded in 2014 by Carla Blazek, a Spokane photographer and dog lover who has been photographing our local K9 units for two years.

Our mission is to raise funds for police K9 units in Washington, Idaho and Montana that are in need of supplemental funding to purchase dogs, ballistic vests, training and equipment.

We also plan to work as an educational resource for communities by helping to explain how K9s benefit both police departments and the community.

K9 Support NW is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization which operates independently of any law enforcement agency.
