Many police and sheriff departments across the state have their own K9 unit to help officers in many ways. Whether they track down suspects, sniff out illegal substances, or use their excellent senses to search and rescue, dogs are vital in many ways.
The West Burlington Police Department has seen the impact that these dogs have had on communities, and now wants to expand their capabilities by investing in a dual-purpose K9 unit for themselves. They are asking for the support of the citizens as they embark on this new journey.
Of course, this opportunity isn’t without expense. As a fully donation-based fundraiser, your tax deductible donations will help support the cost of this new unit. The goal for this campaign is to raise $70,000, which will cover the cost of a K9, equipment, vet fees, training for the dual-K9 and trainer, and other expenses.
You can donate by check by mailing them to 122 Broadway Street, West Burlington, Iowa 52655. If you’d like to donate in person, check or cash can be brought to the West Burlington City Hall Office Monday-Friday 8am-5pm.
If you have any questions, please direct them to Officer McCampbell at McCampbell@westburlington.org or at 319 754 8555
