Reedley K-9 Fundraiser: Halfway To Goal

Posted:
REEDLEY, Calif. (KMPH) -

Police dogs have been a tradition in Reedley since the 1970's.  Recently KMPH Fox 26 and Reedley Police joined hands to raise money to replace Baxter the police dog that had to be put down in January due to a terminal blood disorder.

Currently the fundraising total stands at 6500 dollars.  The goal is to raise $12,000.

Reedley Police Chief Joe Garza had two police dogs for partners back when he was on patrol in the 90's.  His first dog was Alex a German Shepherd and his second dog Cuervo was a black Shepherd.  "Really the biggest reason why I enjoyed doing it was just the excitement level.  You got to do a lot more and you responded to the bigger crimes.  That's where you were needed."

Mayor Bob Beck is a retired cop in Reedley.  He had a police dog too by the name of Monso. "That dog will take the place of two or three offifcers.  If you roll on a call and you have a dog, chances are you're gonna be pretty secure because most guys do not want a part of a dog."

Reedley has one police dog and if $12,000 can be raised a second dog will join the force.  For a twenty dollar donation Reedley Police have three new K-9 shirts to choose from.  They are only available at police headquarters.

Twenty dollars will also give you a K-9 Hero.  The stuffed police dogs are available at Dave's Old Fashioned Sausage, Preheim's Jewelry, The Chamber of Commerce, Reedley Community Center,  and the Reedley Police Department.

The Sean Walsh K-9 Foundation is also offering assistance.  It's selling 20 dollar tickets for an incredible meal all day March 27th at Tahoe Joe's at Cedar and Herndon in Fresno.  The meal includes steak, chicken or ribs with all the fixins.  Tickets are available at the Reedley Police Department.
