We are saddened to announce K-9 "Chewy's" sudden passing -
The Little Rock Police K-9 Association is sad to announce the passing of K-9 "Chewy".  Officer Harrington noticed her partner, Chewy, was not behaving normally Sunday morning and rushed him to the emergency Vet clinic where blood tests and ultrasounds revealed that Chewy had several fast-growing tumors that were depleting his blood supply.  Officer Harrington consulted with several of the Vets and it was determined that there was nothing that could be done to cure Chewy and that any treatment would prolong his pain.  Officer Harrington made the difficult decision to honor Chewy's years of service and protection to her, his fellow Officers and the citizens of the City of Little Rock, and end his suffering.  Chewy passed away quietly with Officer Harrington at his side.  Chewy will have a private cremation service and Officer Harrington will keep his ashes at home.  Please keep Officer Harrington in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.    
K-9 Jeri retires -

K-9 Jeri has retired and is now living the life of a pampered pet with Officer Shippee.  Jeri is almost ten years old and had begun showing his age.  Since Sgt. Hutchins was also retiring, it was decided that Officer Shippee would "inherit" K-9 Duke and they have begun the process of bonding and training together.  We wish K-9 Jeri a long and happy retirement.

The Little Rock Police K-9 Association is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit* organization that was formed to assist in the care of retired police service dogs, provide additional training and equipment for police service dogs and their handlers, and furnish death benefits for the police canines.  The Little Rock Police K-9 Association also strives to educate and promote the use of police service dogs in the community by performing canine demonstrations for schools, civic and church groups as well as appearing at special events.

The members of the Little Rock Police K-9 Association recognize that maintaining a Police K-9 Unit is an expensive endeavor and unfortunately, due to restrictive budgets, the Cities involved are not financially able to cover many of these costs.  It is our goal to honor the life-long service that these dogs give, with a merely a pat on the head and a scratch behind the ear as their only rewards, by raising funds to support them in retirement as well as at the time of their death.

While not officially associated with the Little Rock Police Department or the City of Little Rock, the Little Rock Police K-9 Association strives to reflect a positive image of both.
