(By Hero K9)
Hero K9 is pleased to announce that an equipment grant has been awarded to the Chewelah Police Department for their K9 Rebel. A door pop + heat alarm system and medical kit will be provided to the agency at no cost, thanks to the generosity and support of Shana Greene who provided the donation of $1,500 for the door pop + heat alarm system and an anonymous sponsor who has provided the funds for six medical kits in total, to date, totaling $150 each.
K9 Rebel is a two-year-old Dutch Shepherd certified in patrol and narcotics who works with his partner, Officer Miller, to find bad guys that commit serious crimes like burglary and robbery. Rebel has a strong desire to sniff out narcotics and track criminals.
The door pop + heat alarm system, provided by AceK9.com dba Radiotronics in Stuart, FL, and the K9-specific medical kit, provided by Hero K9, will be shipped directly to the department through Hero K9’s distributor, Streicher’s, in Minneapolis, MN, proudly serving public safety professionals since 1953. A complimentary BarkBox will also be sent to the department for each K9 receiving equipment related to this grant award, thanks to Bark & Co., in New York, NY.
