There are a ton of organizations that support police officers and their families.
But there are fewer organizations working to raise awareness and funding for police K-9s and K-9 Units.
Six-year-old Emma Johnson and her mom, Debbie Johnson, have been passionate supporters of police and police K-9s and are on a mission to make sure police K-9s around the country have the supplies they need to stay safe on the job.
“I said, ‘How about if I started my own 501(c)(3)? Would you allow your agency to reach out to my organization to tell me what your needs are? I go directly to the vendor, make the purchase, and donated to the unit?’ And they said, ‘Yes.’ So that’s what I did,” explained Debbie about how her nonprofit K-9s United was born.
The mom and daughter team make quite a pair and it’s great to see them achieving their goals.
