Rüdiger Foundation

4th Annual Paw and Order
The Rüdiger Foundation’s Annual Dinner and Auction Fundraiser

Rüdiger Foundation was created to identify and attract funding to provide our small communities with K9 resources. Each year, we hold a single fundraiser to raise the funds needed to sustain current K9 Officers and purchase additional dogs. As there is no public funding for this effort, we must depend on the support of our community.

Welcome our third K9 Officer

We’re delighted to share exciting news from the Rüdiger Foundation. We welcomed our third K9 Officer and Handler for Nevada County earlier this year. Please join us in welcoming State Parks Officer Martin Gilbertson and K9 Miro to the RüF family— Officer Gilbertson and K9 Miro have relocated from the Malibu area and have settled in nicely into our area. You will find the 2 of them patrolling our local State Parks and river canyons.

Partner of the Day!
Today's Partner has provided goods and services to previous Paw and Order Auctions. This year, instead of asking them to provide an auction donation, Rudiger Foundation is asking all you to do business with this provider. They have supported us and now it is our turn to help support them. Tell them Rudiger, Kano, Miro and Ranger sent you.
