We appreciate your support!

The Operations K-9 Unit is not budgeted but is fully funded by the Deputy Handlers and donations from businesses, organizations, and individual citizens. Both active and retired dogs live with their human partners.


The Sheriff’s Office needs your support to continue to fund our K-9 Unit. We are asking businesses, community organizations, and individuals to donate funds to purchase equipment and provide the necessary training and other needs to support and maintain this Unit. Your donation to this program will go directly to this effort and is tax deductible.

If you would like to donate to the K-9 Unit, please visit our donation page and choose “K9 Unit” under the “Payment Type” dropdown. Monetary donations are accepted at either the Shelton or Belfair Sheriff’s Offices – Checks should be made out to “MCSO” – IN THE MEMO SECTION PLEASE WRITE “MCSO K9”.

Donations of necessary equipment and supplies are welcome as well. If you would prefer to donate special equipment, please contact either Lt. Nathan Birklid or Lt. Trevor Severance, for current needs, at 360-427-9670 ext. 313.
