Note from dog
Normally, I hand NOTE FROM DOG over to a pup who has earned a starring role in a current story, but this time around, I asked them if I might have their permission to write this NOTE because a lot has happened since we sent our last one at the end of November.

AKC Reunite, one of the American Kennel Club‘s many branches, and specializing in finding and microchipping lost pets, recently donated around $150,000 for Giving Tuesday to police departments around the US to help them get K9 units (or police dogs in everyday terms).

Technically, $157,500 was raised in matching funds through the Adopt-A-K9-Cop program, with additional fundraising help from AKC member clubs, AKC affiliated programs, and members of the general public.

“The more than $150,000 from the AKC Reunite Adopt-A-K9-Cop matching grant program will help these departments acquire new police dogs, contributing in increased safety in their communities,” Tom Sharp, AKC Reunite CEO, said in a press release.

Twenty police departments and other law enforcement agencies in Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania and Texas will receive these funds.
