Your generous donations to Friends of Botetourt K9 go to supporting your local police K9s.  The work these K9s do improve officer safety and protect the public by sniffing out dangerous drugs and tracking down individuals that pose a risk to the public.  For example, K9, Jaap, was called in for his assistance in locating a fleeing felon in Botetourt County.  Jaap started his track and he led deputies to a storage building behind a citizen’s house.  Jaap alerted deputies to a partially open window.  The suspect was located inside the storage building and peacefully surrendered to Jaap and deputies on scene.  The K9 program is a great asset for the citizens of Botetourt County.  Your donations help provide the equipment and training that keeps the K9 and handler safe while on duty.  The donations you provide will help with medical care for current and retired K9s.  The support you provide will go directly to the K9 program in Botetourt County.  All purchases made to support Botetourt’s K9s get approved by the Board and not the individual handler.
