The Ventura Police Department K9 Unit presents the 8th Annual Bark Out Loud Comedy Night Fundraiser on September 28th, 2019 at the Ventura County Credit Union from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. Enjoy an evening of fun with K9 demos, silent auction and raffle items, photo ops with your favorite K9, dinner, and comedy.
All proceeds go directly to the Ventura Police Department K9 Unit.
The funds raised by our K9 Unit, and the NPDF, help pay for the canines, their training, and medical bills. All of our canines, past and present, were paid for through the generosity of the NPDF and from local businesses and individuals. No taxpayer dollars were used in the purchase or training of our canines.
The cost of a canine can range from $6,000-$7,000, not including training and certification, which can be upwards of an additional $8,000-$9,000.
Those looking to support the VPD K9 Unit can do it through the NPDF (make sure to write VPD K9 on the check, by buying VPD K9 Merchandise, by donating online, or by coming to the K9 Storefront at the Pacific View Mall in Ventura. All profits from the merchandise sales go directly to the National Police Dog Foundation and are earmarked for the Ventura Police K9 Unit specifically.
