We are happy to announce that K9 Boss of the Johnson County MO Sheriff’s Office in MO has been awarded Naloxone (Narcan) along with the new NarCase – Tac Life Systems LLC holder by Tac-Life. This kit was made possible as a result of a donation from the non-profit charity Protection4Paws, Inc.
Protection4Paws is a PA based charity whose mission is to supply Law Enforcement K9s with the items needed to protect them while they protect us.
Naloxone is a fast-acting opioid antagonist that reverses the effects that using opioid drugs has on the brain, restoring breathing and reawakening the individual within a matter of only 2-5 minutes from being administered.
Since these kits are the same as the human version we always recommend that the handler make an appointment with their Veterinarian to learn how to properly administer the drug to their K9. A licensed veterinarian can also provide the appropriate needles to convert the kits to an injectable instead of nasal.
The donation to provide one Narcan kit is $100 and there are many more that are needed. If you would like to sponsor a kit and or make a donation to provide other needed items please visit our website at http://protection4paws.com/donate/. If you have questions we can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone 717-331-0231.
