As 2015 comes to a close, I want to share with you our accomplishments of this past year. KYK9 continued our ongoing training of K9 Scout, K9 Remy, K9 Pocket and their teams, working with nationally recognized trainers, and collaborating with several new search partners. Our work took us as far away as Rhode Island for training; to Alabama for testifying as a national expert witness on human remains detection; and throughout the Commonwealth and surrounding states searching for missing persons. Our searches this year were both successful and difficult. We are most excited to report that K9 Pocket had her first live find, safely locating a missing child in the woods. She saved a child’s life and it cannot get any more wonderful than that! We also worked on several high-profile cases that remain unsolved and we can only hope and pray that our work will help in solving these cases.
This year brought new volunteers into KYK9’s search efforts. We have searched with evidence recovery divers; boat captains and ATV drivers; an anthropologist and an underwater ROV; and a college class of forensic science students from Maryland. We continued our work with the Kentucky State Police, county sheriffs and local police.
Our community partnerships grew this year. We are honored by employees at Allstate and Hilliard Lyons who generously selected KYK9 as their charity of choice and made generous contributions to KYK9. We also continued in our role as the search dog team for JCPS. We partnered with state and non-profit service providers of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Finally, we participated in Give Local Louisville with wonderful success, increasing community awareness and financial support of KYK9.
We are ending the year with KYK9's Annual Fund Drive. With only 4 days left, we encourage you to participate and make a donation. Your donation, no matter the size, is a huge help to a small organization like KYK9. We would be honored to count you as one of our 2015 partners!
With many thanks,
Jennifer Jordan Hall
