The Aftermath K9 Grant

What is the Aftermath K9 Grant?

The Aftermath K9 Grant was founded to showcase, support, and reward the unique contributions made by K9 units across the country and, indirectly, to recognize and support the communities that we both serve. The month-long contest awards grants, up to $20,000 in total grants, to new or established K9 programs for maintenance, safety equipment, or officer training. Officers and community members nominate and vote for local departments through our website and on Instagram; the departments with the most popular votes receive grants.

When is the grant?

Nominations for the 2020 K9 Grant will begin on September 8, 2020. Here are some dates to remember:

  • Nomination Period: 9/8 – 9/18
  • Voting Period: 9/23 – 9/28
  • Winners Announced: 9/30

Who can apply?

Any K9 unit in the US is eligible for nomination. Everyone, from officers to community members to local businesses, can nominate their local department. The nomination process is easy and takes only a minute. Then, when the community voting period begins, simply come back to the official Grant page to vote and support your favorite K9s. We encourage everyone to get involved!

How can I apply?

When the K9 Grant officially opens, a link will be made available to take you to our nomination page. Departments must be nominated and a photo of your K9 or department logo submitted in order to participate in the Grant and in the voting period.

In 2019, grants totaling $22,000, were awarded to seventeen K9 units across the country. Open to law enforcement departments nationwide, last year’s K9 Grant involved almost 380 agencies. During the voting period, more than 484,000 votes were cast with almost 13,000 coming from Instagram fans showing support for their local department. Coos County Sheriff’s Office and their K9’s Odin and Raven took home the 1st place, $5,000 grant.


We want to say a sincere THANK YOU to all of the departments and communities that participated in last year’s K9 Grant. The success of this grant is a direct reflection of each and every one of you. We hope to see you again as we begin the 2020 Aftermath K9 Grant!

"Aftermath team made a very hard event much easier. Without them, I do not know how I would have made it through this. Corry went above and beyond my expectations. She was much more than the lead and for that I am more than thankful."

Christopher R. - Tallahassee, FL

"My father passed away and was left unattended for a few days with His two dogs in the house. We called aftermath on a recommendation from the local police department. John and his team were so helpful, thoughtful and professional throughout this difficult process. They even helped us load my father’s Harley into our trailer because we didn’t have a ramp. John stood with us while his team worked and let us reminisce about our father with him. The team went through everything in the house and saved everything that they could for us. During this incredibly difficult time for us, they put our minds at ease knowing that they would take care of cleaning the house completely and thoroughly. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, john and team. "

"Aftermath was very professional and was able to accommodate the urgency in the situation. They explained the services and was able to relieve my worries as they dealt with the insurance company. Other companies were unable to take the job or handle the job with efficiency to get the ball moving. Since I was needing the job done in a small window of time."
