The 9th annual Ventura Turkey Trot will take place on Thanksgiving Morning at the Ventura Auto Center. A great way to kick off your holiday morning with the whole family. Awards, Booths, Food, and Jolly Jumps for the Kids provide a fun time for all. Participants are also asked to bring non-perishable food items to donate which we will donate to the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging Food Drive.

Each year we choose a local charity to partner with on the event and for 2016 we have selected the Ventura Police Department K9 Unit.
The VPD K9 Unit and the National Police Dog Foundation (NPDF) work together to raise funds for not only our agency but other law enforcement K9 Programs nationwide.
The funds raised by our K9 Unit, and the NPDF, help pay for the canines, their training, and medical bills. All of our canines, past and present, were paid for through the generosity of the NPDF and from local businesses and individuals. No taxpayer dollars were used in the purchase or training our canines. The cost of a canine can range from $6,000 – $7,000, not including training and certification, which can be upwards of an additional $8,000 – $9,000.
Those looking to support the VPD K9 Unit can make a donation through the NPDF, buying VPD K9 Unit merchandise, or stopping by the K9 Storefront located at the Pacific View Mall.
