K9s & Handlers

The Matt Haverkamp Foundation is proud to have worked with the fine police departments in the greater Cincinnati area. We wish the K9 police officer handlers and their new partners that we have brought together much success in the pursuit of keeping our communities safe.

Below are the photos, names, and certification dates of the 40 K9s that The Foundation has funded since its inception in 2005. Please click on the photos or K9 names to experience the success stories that have helped to carry on Matt Haverkamp’s legacy. The Foundation’s first partnerships were with the police departments in Madeira and Loveland – both of which had a special connection to Matt. The Foundation hopes to carry on Matt’s dreams and passions with many other Cincinnati area law enforcement agencies and their K9 units.

The black bands in the upper left corner of some of these photos indicate that the K9 has passed away. The date on these bands is when they passed on. We are honored that these K9s helped in keeping the greater Cincinnati area communities safer.
