The Blount County K9 Association is a local organization that helps provide care for retired K9s from Blount County, as well as Maryville and Alcoa cities. Once the K9s retire, their handler is left with their medical bills and daily care expenses. The K9 Association gives money to help cover these expenses after retirement. They also help fund training and protective equipment that is not covered by the city/county budgets. Currently, they are working to finish an agility course for training. As needed, the K9 Association will also help blue families in need when facing hard times (family deaths and illnesses, medical bills, etc.).
