Douglas County Sheriff's K-9 Unit

Franktown Animal Clinic continues its long tradition of assisting the Douglas County Sheriff K-9 Unit. Dr. Swieckowski and the team have been treating the dogs from the K-9 Unit for 17 years. We also provide in-depth canine first aid training to the K-9 officers.

You can help the K-9 Unit by Supporting Friends of Douglas County K-9! Funds to purchase new dogs for the Unit come solely from private donations. Friends of Douglas County K-9 has been established to help us give back to the K-9 Unit. Together we can help the Sheriff's Department continue this important community service!
