K9 Officers was formed by Rocky and Shannon Smith to provide assistance to Law Enforcement Departments in obtaining K9s.

Our goal is to meet the needs of as many officers as possible while putting top quality dogs in departments where they will be properly utilized and well cared for to help keep our communities safe.

We do not guarantee that every applicant will receive a police K-9 as demand exceeds our capacity to supply, however we will review each application carefully and will contact you after the review.


Please fill out the form below to apply. You will find that this questionnaire is divided into three categories: the handler, the mid-level supervisor (Sgt.), and the head of the agency.

You may also send applications via mail. Click here for a DOCX or here for a PDF of the application form. Send completed forms to: K9 Officers, 503 FM 359, Ste. 130 #105, Richmond, TX 77406.

K9 Officers is a non-profit organization and relies on private and public donations.  As such, please mention K9 Officers, ( when receiving positive media attention pertaining to the K9 and K9 program.  Your support allows us to continue to help other agencies.  The support and positive media attention from other agencies has helped allow us to donate the many K9’s we have and take your application today.   K9 Officers is volunteer run and works tirelessly to donate as many professionally trained K9’s as possible.

We require quarterly statistics, photos, and notifications of the positive impact the dog is having on the community, so we may keep those who make these donated K9’s a reality, aware of the long-term impact of their donation to our community and law enforcement.

Please attach any documentation that will support your answers on this questionnaire to help our Board make a more informed decision about placing a K-9 with your department. You may attach common file types of photos, documents, etc. at the bottom of the form.

After our Board has reviewed your application we will contact you by phone or email to follow-up with your department.
