About the Campaign
Here’s how this equipment both helps Copper and Sgt. Chastain on the job.
The Ranger K9 Trauma Kit provides sterile, veterinary grade, K9-specific supplies to assist an officer in providing aid to their K9 in the event of an on-the-job incident or injury. This kit includes a canine oxygen mask, along with other first aid items, a quick reference sheet for K9 vitals and dosing, and comes in a heavy-duty, canvas bag which is embroidered with emblems ensuring that it is easily identifiable for K9 use.
K9 Copper is a 7-year-old Dutch Shepherd certified in Patrol, Tracking/Trailing, and Narcotics. She is assigned to Sergeant Scott Chastain of the Waukegan IL Police Department. Copper is very fast, loves playing with toys, and always seems to have a toy in her mouth. When Sgt. Chastain watches TV, Copper will drop her toys onto his lap until he wakes up and plays with her.
NOTE: The funds collected as part of this fundraiser will be allocated to the agency’s Equipment Grant Application with Hero K9 for their K9. Should the application status change and/or if donations received are in excess of the goal amount, donations will be directed to the organization’s general fund to provide additional equipment grants and cover operational costs and/or other business-related expenses.
