Last year’s event was a blast! Looking forward to more fun in 2019!
Many thanks to The University of Arizona Police Department for hosting the SALEF Canine Walk for Cops on the U of A Mall!!
This year’s event will include all four (4) agencies supported by SALEF: Tucson Police Department, University of Arizona Police Department, Pima County Sheriff’s Department and Marana Police Department. They’ll all be here, so no telling what we’re going to see!
Last year’s Canine Walk saw over 300 doggies and their walkers (humans). And the TPD K9 demonstration was fabulous! SALEF appreciates all the sponsors, vendors, goodie bag and raffle item donors! We can always use more sponsors and donations for this worthy event, so if you’re interested, stay tuned for more details on how to participate. Or, call our office at (520) 207-2878.

You and your loving furry family members are invited to register for a FUNraiser stroll alongside police officers and their incredible canines from the Tucson Police Department, The University of Arizona Police Department, Pima County Sheriff’s Department and the Marana Police Department! The walk route around the U of A Mall is approximately 1-mile (a circle route between Cherry & Old Main). Check-in begins at 7am and the walk begins at 8am.
Register today! $20 for the first/individual doggie covers up to 2 walkers, add $10 each per additional doggie (max 2 additional doggies). Each doggie registration will include a doggie goodie bag (1 bag for each registered/paid doggie). Doggie bags are filled with great items and coupons perfect for your pooch! Each registered doggie will also receive a terrific event souvenir! Check in at the event early and visit with the police officers and their canines, grab some coffee, and visit the vendor booths.
Following the walk, grab some water and snacks, courtesy of Walgreens, and find a seat on the grass to enjoy an AMAZING K9 DEMONSTRATION. During the demonstration you are encouraged to ask the officers questions and if you’re brave enough, put on the ‘bite sleeve’ and experience the power of the incredible K9’s.
