Cape and Islands Police K-9 Relief Fund Hosting Motorcycle Run


DENNIS – The Cape and Islands Police K-9 Relief Fund will be hosting their 11th annual Motorcycle Run Fundraiser on Saturday.

When a police dog retires, the costs of veterinary visits fall on the dog’s handler. Founder of the fund Joe Ambrosini said the fund helps ease the burden for the officer.

“When the dog retires, we have an application they fill out, they bring the dog to the vet, and we pay the bill,” Ambrosini said.

Caring for these dogs is important, considering how much they provide to police operations and the community as a hole.

“They’ll go where no other officer will go. They find Alzheimer’s patients, they find children, they find bad guys, they find property, narcotics,” Ambrosini said.

“I just thought it would be a nice thing to do, and here we are.”

The motorcycle run begins at Patriot Square on Route 134 in South Dennis. The route concludes in Provincetown, where a post-run party with food and refreshments will be held.

Registration is from 9 to 11 a.m. The cost is $20 per rider and $10 per passenger. For more information, visit
