K-9 Rocky

Rocky, a canine officer with Napa Police, hangs onto his handler, Officer Brett Muratori, outside of Pet Food Express during last year's Cover Your K-9 fundraiser. 

Does your family pet need a bath? If so, head to Pet Food Express where, on Saturday and Sunday, all proceeds from their self-service pet wash tokens will benefit local K-9 units.

Money raised from the ‘Cover Your K-9’ event will help fund bullet-proof vests for police dogs, heat sensor alarms for police vehicles and first aid materials.

Last year, Cover Your K-9, a project of the Police & Working K-9 Foundation, provided Napa Police K-9 Rocky with a new Kevlar vest, which can cost between $800 and $1,200. The fund provides safety equipment and emergency medical care to California law enforcement K-9 teams.

Napa’s Pet Food Express is located at 3916 Bel Aire Plaza.
