Spike's K9 Fund, with your support, provides custom-fit ballistic vests, protective equipment, medical cost assistance, and access to top-of-the-line training programs.

A working K9 is typically a breed bred for its dexterity, ability to focus, intelligence and athleticism. Once selected for work, that K9 will undergo rigorous training for tasks such as apprehending suspected criminals and sniffing out narcotics or explosives.

When the K9 is ready to work, there’s been significant, essential cost and time invested into their conditioning to ensure they’re an asset to their team as well as to reduce risk of harm to themselves and others when working.

When these dogs have a need that allows them to be more effective at their job, the department they work for has to make a difficult and often detrimental decision of whether the cost of the need outweighs the cost of the specialized K9.

Spike’s K9 Fund, with your support, aspires to ensure every K9 receives exactly what they need every time.


Every donation, store purchase, event attended, and conversation helps our nation's working dogs receive the protection and care they deserve.

How We Started

Spikes K9 Fund was founded by James Hatch, a retired Special Warfare Operator. As a K9 handler on several deployments, James’ life was regularly spared by the work of K9s – one of the most memorable was Spike.

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) — Not many dogs are cut out for the intense training required to apprehend suspected criminals or detect narcotics and explosives. After the K9 is trained and ready for duty, they require the necessary tools and protection to perform effectively. This is where Spike’s K9 Fund steps in, offering custom-fit ballistic vests and protective gear. But how do they fund this? Through fundraisers like the upcoming Kipping for K9’s on April 20.
