About the Campaign
K9 Figaro is a 6-year-old Labrador Retriever certified in Narcotics. He is assigned to Sergeant Erica Vieira of the University of Rhode Island Police Department. Figaro is NESPAC, NORT, and NAPWDA certified and has worked both the Boston and Hartford marathons as well as department call-outs. He is a food reward K9 which means he absolutely LOVES food! Figaro is very friendly and has more friends than Sgt. Vieira. K9 Figaro has 2 brothers, Vinny and Recon, who he loves to play with when at home.
Here’s how this equipment both helps Figaro and Sgt. Vieira 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 that is embroidered with emblems ensuring that it is easily identifiable for K9 use.
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.
