The mission of the Shadow Fund is to promote education on the importance of the partnership between K9s and their handlers, and raise public awareness about the healthcare of retired Police, Fire, Military, U.S. Customs, and Search & Rescue K9s. The Shadow Fund will promote the raising of funds for those K9s residing in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex.
The Shadow Fund has been made possible through the support of both individuals and especially the PETCO Foundation and local PETCO Stores across the DFW metroplex. The Shadow Fund, operating under the 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, provides a tax exemption for it's donors, so it is a win-win for the community. In addition, the Pet Memorial Park has a Heroes Section around the War Dog Monument just for these dogs when the time comes to honor their life of service. The Cedar Hill Pet Memorial Project, Inc., will cover all cost associated with the interment of these heroic animals.

Is an advocacy program that will grant financial assistance to handlers of retired K9s. These handlers, often the officers themselves who served alongside the K9s as members of local police departments or the military, are fully responsible for the medical bills associated with caring for the K9s once the dog has retired. Sadly, these dogs often face debilitating injuries and medical conditions as a result of their service to our community and nation.
