Kudos & Kindness: Community showed support for K-9 program

The South Lake Tahoe Police Canine Association would like to thank The Cork & More for hosting the “Pints for Paws” fundraiser on March 15. We had an excellent turnout and the beer was great. Support from businesses such as The Cork & More is critical for the vitality of our K-9 program. The money raised from events like this assist the K-9 Unit with obtaining critical equipment and allow K-9 staff to attend additional K-9 training that they would otherwise be unable to purchase or attend.

Just this week, the K-9 Association purchased a new decoy suit that was long overdue at a cost of $1,250. Half of the money for this purchase came from the community. Several years ago, the association contributed more than half the money to purchase K-9 Argo, who was at the event. The South Lake Tahoe Police Department would not have been able to purchase a second K-9 without the financial support of the community.

Special thanks to owners Jim and Kim Warlow and their staff – Amanda Henry, Stephen Brunsman, Robin Toste, Margaret Meier, Lori Blairand and Hillary Mahoney – for hosting this event. Additional thanks goes out to Mark Cabrera from Bison Brewery.
