K-9 Care is a program established by Humane Pennsylvania to provide supports such as safety equipment and veterinary care to Berks and Lancaster County’s active and retired police dogs, also known as “K-9” Officers.

Since 2010, Humane Pennsylvania has offered discounted or free veterinary services to selected K-9 Officers upon request.  In December of 2010, Humane Pennsylvania donated two K-9 bullet-proof vests to the Berks County Sheriff’s department’s K-9 officers.

Recent conversation about the current needs of the K-9 Officers in our community has inspired us to expand this service to provide FREE veterinary care to all actively serving and retired K-9 Officers in Berks and Lancaster Counties, effective immediately.

Services will be provided by the region’s leading veterinary staff at each of Humane Pennsylvania’s AAHA accredited Humane Veterinary Hospitals.
