About the SVPCA


It is the mission of the Saginaw Valley Police Canine Association to provide funding to law enforcement agencies for the purchase and use of police service dogs. It is by doing this that we hope to promote the use of these police service dogs in the line of duty and through demonstrations for community and school groups.

Organization Overview

The Saginaw Valley Police Canine Association was founded in December, 2012 in order to provide financial support to police K9 units in Saginaw County. The SVPCA is an organization that promotes the educational advancement, welfare and safety of K9 teams in law enforcement by providing the funding necessary to meet these needs.


The idea to to financially support K9 units started in January 2010 after several students were expelled from Standish-Sterling High School. Drugs had started taking over the small community of Standish and there wasn't the money in the Sheriff's Department budget to support a K9 unit. On April 5, 2010, less than 3 months after beginning the fundraising, the Wilk family lost a member of their family.

Joey Wilk enjoyed watching the Red Wings, hunting and camping. He was deeply loved by all his family and is missed terribly. The pain of losing Joey has been the driving force behind the K9 fundraising for the Wilk girls. It is this pain that has pushed them to help law enforcement agencies with the war on drugs.
