Calling all those who “Back the Blue”. 💙🚔🐾We are planning our 2nd fundraising event for our nonprofit. Party on the Patio and Bike Night in memory of K9 Nitro on August 21, 2022 at The Up North Lodge in Gwinn, Michigan from 3-8 PM. Honor Credit Union is our generous sponsor.

For this event, we are hoping for donations in the form of raffle baskets (or items for raffle baskets), silent auction items, gift certificates etc. Proceeds from the raffle will help the Marquette Police Department acquire an Explosives Detection K9 to replace K9 Nitro and will help UPK9 support K9 Teams across the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

We are 100% IRS compliant as a nonprofit so we can provide letters to individuals/businesses for tax purposes for donations.

We are hoping to reach the entire UP with our organization so please share far and wide. If you’d prefer to make a cash donation the link is here:

As K9 Nitro would say, “You da bomb!” 💣 🐾💙
