Lend a Paw, Help a Cause
Our annual Paw Print Fundraiser will once again help worthy non-profit organizations to make a difference in our communities. By rounding up or donating at the register, your donations will fund important work in animal welfare, rescues, and spay and neuter efforts.
100% of all funds raised will go directly to these local organizations.
Back the Blue K-9 Force provides financial support to law enforcement K-9 units, help departments obtain K-9s and eventually add support for retired K-9s. The departments do not currently have funds allocated for K-9 safety or medical needs. Back the Blue K-9 Force raises monies to fill this gap for these departments and provide additional safety and peace of mind for K-9 handlers. Based in Colorado, they hope to grow their fundraising efforts so they can support more departments locally and nationally. For more information visit https://www.backthebluek-9force.com/.
