Your support is crucial

Your support helps us to facilitate local training for K9 teams, financially assist with medical costs when a K9 retires, build a central training facility, and create a dedicated K9 memorial.


Your donation to Central Indiana K9 Association supports us in the following ways:


Dog and handler teams have the opportunity to attend specialized events lasting 1 -3 days and are led by professional instructors from around the nation.

When you support Training, your donation helps offset expenses like:  
· Professional instructor fees
· Travel and housing for out-of-area instructors
· Food, snacks, and drinks for course participants (including the dogs).

Take a look at upcoming training opportunities here.


Shadow Fund

Working dogs train and work like professional athletes every day. After retiring, just like athletes, these K9s often have significant health issues.

Your donation to the Shadow Fund helps the handler to expand the life, and quality of life for the K9s who have served their community, without incurring a financial hardship.  Read JohnE’s story here

Training Facility

While CIK9 provides professional training opportunities for K9 teams, the training currently occurs at a variety of locations in the area.

A Capital Campaign has been established to raise funds for the construction of a specially designed, permanent training facility and K9 memorial.  Your donation can have a big impact in helping us to bring this dream to fruition. You can learn more about the Capital Campaign here.
