The Police K-9 Association is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit and charitable organization responsible for training and assisting nearly 50 active and retired K-9 teams between 20+ departments. As the need for K-9's continues to grow, so does our organization's responsibility to support these K-9 teams. There are significant costs in starting and maintaining a prosperous K-9 program. City and county financial budgets often limit needed funding for K-9's. The PK9A assists agencies by offsetting the cost of education, training, equipment, and the medical needs of both active and retired K-9's.

Deputy Michael E. Creager, II #7963
Tuscarawas County Sheriff’s Office
End of Watch: Friday, September 25, 2020

A Warrior and beloved member of the Tuscarawas County Sherriff’s Office, died peacefully, early Friday, September 25, 2020, surrounded by his family following a valiant battle with cancer. Born in Union Hospital at Dover, Ohio on November 27, 1974, Mike was a son of Deberah (Gus) Zoppi of Midvale and the late Michael E. Creager. Mike was a 1993 graduate of Indian Valley High School; and prior pursuing a career in law enforcement, worked for Marlite at Dover and served as the caretaker of the Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds. It was during this time Mike began working as a Reserve Deputy with the Tuscarawas County Sherriff’s Office and was part of the Mounted Unit. In 2010, he became a Road Deputy and transitioned into the K-9 Unit. His partner, Fygo, a Belgian Malinois, became a State of Ohio certified patrol/narcotics detection K-9. Together, Mike and Fygo trained with the Police K-9 Association (PK9A), where Mike served as a Board Member. Mike and Fygo also worked as members of the Tuscarawas County Sherriff’s Office SWAT team. Mike was a talented K-9 trainer who had the opportunity to travel throughout the United States to work with other departments as they trained their K-9 officers. Mike’s world, however, revolved around his daughters. There isn’t anything he wouldn’t do for them. He was a skilled craftsman who enjoyed making special furniture for his daughters and then helped them to paint and finish their pieces. He also enjoyed making custom wooden flags. He will be missed by many for his willingness to help others, his fun-loving spirit, and selfless acts. K-9 Fygo is now living the best retired life with his loving, extended family.
