On October 31, 2017, K-9 officer, Jax died during a confrontation with a suspect engaged in domestic violence. When the suspect would not surrender peacefully, Jax was sent to subdue and apprehend him but was stabbed by the suspect. Jax was rushed to an animal hospital and passed away that evening at the age of four. Jax had served for two years in Sunnyvale and had 26 arrests to his credit.
Although the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety has a memorial for the fallen police officers, K-9 officer Jax is not part of that memorial. The proceeds from the Pet Parade will go towards funding a K-9 memorial dedicated to Jax, which will honor the past and current working K-9 officers of the City of Sunnyvale.
Participate in pet contests (prizes awarded), dress your pets, and most importantly HAVE FUN! Any pet, be it your dog, cat, platypus, or any animal that you may have is invited to join this celebration and tribute to our furry (or hairless) friends!
Register here for the parade.
