This last month we held our K-9 Fundraiser/Open house and I cannot express my sincere thanks to everyone that donated a raffle prize, money, and/or  helped us reach our goal.  We were able to raise enough money for a new K-9 and had a very good turnout for the open house!  I would also like to thank my employees for their generous help and organization of the event.  We plan on purchasing the new K-9 this winter or early spring.  Our current K-9 “Bear” will retire and live with his handler, Matt Moser.
