The San Rafael Police Department had a very successful K9 program for over 20 years, but was eliminated in 2003 due to budget constraints. The men and women of SRPD have formed the K9 Association in an effort to rebuild the program solely through fundraising. Contributions from the community and the San Rafael Police K9 Association funded the purchase of two German Shepherds – Ares and Faro. All proceeds from this event will go to the care, training and maintenance of the K9s. The tickets and donations for this event are tax deductable.
