In late summer of 2011, CWDF was founded to help launch Cohasset’s new Police K-9 program. Today, officer Pat Reardon and his second K-9, “Einstein” are serving the community, and a familiar sight around town.
The CWDF supports K-9 “Erik” in his retirement and will support K-9 Einstein throughout his working life, providing for their care and ensuring that they have proper veterinary care. CWDF fully funds Cohasset’s police K-9 program, providing patrol equipment, outfitting of the K-9 cruiser, specialty electronics, veterinary care and more.
In the summer of 2014, with the support of Cohasset residents, we delivered a highly trained service dog, “Parker”, to a young Cohasset child. Service Dog, Parker is now in their 5th year as a team. We have another grant available to a resident to help purchase or train a service dog for a disabled Cohasset resident and are awaiting a qualified applicant.
The volunteer-led foundation also supports a rapidly growing therapy dog program, more than a half dozen trained trained dogs that regularly visit nursing homes, hospitals, schools and libraries.
With your donation we can continue to fund these valuable programs which benefit every Cohasset resident.
