Ludlow Police K9 Oakley Awarded Health Care Grant

Oakley, the K9 within the Ludlow Police Department, was awarded a Healthcare for K9 Heroes grant.

Vested Interest in K9s, a nonprofit based in East Taunton, Mass., awarded $50,000 total to various police departments across the country, including Ludlow. 

The Healthcare for K9 Heroes covers annual policy premiums for police departments that have to raise funds to support a K9 unit.

Law enforcement dogs ages two through seven are eligible. The annual medical reimbursement insurance policy, administered by Trupanion, will cover illnesses, injuries—including those sustained in the line of duty—diagnostic testing, and therapies. The plan allows the freedom to use any licensed veterinarian, specialty center, or emergency hospital in the United States, and Puerto Rico.
