VIDEO: Hundreds of bikes participate in Cape Cod Police K-9 Relief Fund motorcycle ride

– The Cape Cod Police K-9 Relief Fund motorcycle ride took place Saturday afternoon. An estimated 400-500 motorcycles made the trek from Patriot Square in Dennis to Macmillan Wharf in Provincetown where the Provincetown Harbormaster assisted in finding room for all of them. The fund supports expenses for care of retired Police K-9 dogs.

(From 2016) “When the dogs retire, the burden is on the officer to maintain the dog,” said event organizer Joe Ambrosini, a retired K9 handler with the Barnstable County Sheriff’s Office.

“They live another five years, six years, and they get to be a dog again. If you’re a K9 officer and you retire a dog, when you bring him to the vets we pay the medical bills.”

“The dogs will do more than any police officer will,” Ambrosini said.

“They’ll go into a basement in the middle of the night, 3 o’clock in the morning. There’s so many things the dogs are utilized for, finding children, finding items, catching bad guys.”
