                                 Help Support the Klamath County Sheriff's Office Canine Program


The average start up cost for a new K-9 and the 6 week training program for the handler is estimated at $16,000, which does not include the handler's travel expenses, salary, properly equipped vehicle or other equipment to safely lodge, transport and maintain the K-9.

The Klamath County Sheriff's Office does not wish to use additional County General Fund dollars for this program so we are seeking support from the local citizens and businesses to help fund our campaign to restore the program to maximum effectiveness. 

A dedicated account has been established within the Klamath County Sheriff's Office to receive and track contributions to the Klamath County Sheriff's Office K-9 Program. Contribution can be brought to the Klamath County Sheriff's Office or mailed to the Klamath County Sheriff's Office, Attention: K9 Program, 3300 Vandenberg Rd., Klamath Falls, OR 97603.

If you would like more information regarding the Klamath County Sheriff's Office K-9 program you can send email questions to sheriff@co.klamath.or.us or contact us directly at 541-883-5130.
