Welcome . . .
Donations for K9 Memorial . . .
The WSP experienced its first line of duty K9 death in April 2016.The outpouring of love and support to K9 Patrick’s partner, Trooper Mike Allen, was overwhelming. Many people reached out to the Washington State Patrol Memorial Foundation (WSPMF) to ask how they could help. After many months of planning, and in coordination with the WSP K9 handlers, a permanent K9 memorial will be dedicated at the Washington State Patrol Academy in Shelton, Washington, near the WSP Fallen Officer Memorial. This granite stone will be permanently etched with K9 Patrick’s name and end of watch date, and will serve as a beautiful tribute to the service and sacrifice of WSP K9s lost in the line of duty.
The WSP Memorial Foundation (not for profit 501(c)(3) organization) is accepting donations to fund the K9 Memorial. Any additional funds raised will be earmarked for WSP fallen officer memorials across the state.
Donations may be made online from the Donations Page (www.wspmf.org/donate.htm) or by check to WSPMF, PO Box 7544, Olympia, WA 98507. Please note “K9 memorial” on your donation. You may also call Sharon Phillips at 360-597-4411 if using a credit card. All donors will receive a donation receipt for tax purposes.
