Police Service Dogs & Community
Police Service Dogs (PSDs) have a long and storied history of public service, answering the call of duty 24-7, often under very difficult and challenging circumstances.
They are, without question, deserving of the honour of “Pillars of the Force” and have a dedicated pillar and section on the Princess Royal Walk.
Like their human counterparts, Police Service Dogs will have their stories told through the Virtual Pillars display inside the Heritage Centre and available online.
A charitable tax receipt will be issued for the full amount of your donation.
20% of your PSD donation will be gifted to Ned’s Wish, a charitable, not-for-profit organization providing financial support for the medical care of retired police and military service dogs, ensuring a well-earned, safe and healthy dog’s retirement.
This page outlines the options and claim process available to Police Service Dogs and Community Supporters who wish to make a dedication to the Pillars of the Force.
Use the following buttons below to navigate to each section on this page.
