K9 Iras

Oct 2018-  K9 Iras is a 5 year old female German Shorthaired Pointer.  She served as an explosives detection K9 Team Program from October 2014 through 2018 for the San Diego Mass Transit Authority.  Before losing her handler Sgt. Hector Herrera (Hex) to terminal cancer, the department made it possible to retire K9 Iras to her handler’s family to watch over and protect them.

SoCal K9 Foundation was contacted to see if any financial relief was possible.  We understand and know first hand the huge undertaking it will take to care for a specially trained K9.  

It was our mission and YOUR donation that made it possible to provide K9 Iras’ family with some monetary support for any future needs she may have.
