MONROE COUNTY, Ind. – The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office needs your help. They’re seeking donations to re-implement their K9 program. The last K9 the department had retired in 1996.

With the increase of drug trafficking and missing person calls, the department is looking to create their own K9 unit again without having to call other agencies.

The department needs $18,000 which will cover training, equipment and a kennel.

According to the sheriff’s office, the K9 handler will be chosen from their current employees.

 

Donations can be mailed to:
