After 9 years of service to the Cheltenham community, K9 Odie, CTPD’s explosive detection canine will retire from duty.  K9 Odie will enjoy retirement in the company of his handler and his family. 

The CTPD, through a matching grant provided by the American Kennel Club (AKC), is submitting for a grant to cover the costs associated with replacing K9 Odie.  The AKC is promoting the AKC REUNITE program.  As the nation’s largest non-profit pet microchip and recovery service, their mission is to keep pet microchipping and enrollment affordable, with no annual fees, so more lost pets can find their way home.

Since 1995 AKC microchips, collar tags and 24/7/365 recovery experts have helped reunite over 500,000 lost pets with their owners. Over nine million pets (35+ different species!) are enrolled with AKC Reunite. It is their mission to provide quality products and services that ultimately protect and reunite pets with their owners and prevent pets from populating our nation’s shelters.  Please check out their website www.akcreunite.org and consider signing up your pet for this program.

As a 501c3, the AKC has given back over $9 million to support working K9s and pet disaster relief efforts.

As part of their mission, the AKC is providing $7,500 to an agency who can raise $2,500 to promote the AKC REUNITE program.  For this, we need your help. Please help us raise $2,500 to replace Odie and keep our K9 unit strong!

All donations can be made payable to "Cheltenham Township" and sent to the Police Department at 8230 Old York Road, Elkins Park PA 19027.  PLEASE PUT K9 UNIT IN THE MEMO LINE.
