About the Campaign
Here’s how this equipment both helps Jax and Ptlm. Lamanna 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 Jax is a three-year-old German Shepherd certified in Patrol, Tracking/Trailing, and Narcotics and Cadaver Detection. He is assigned to Patrolman Keith Lamanna of the Waukegan IL Police Department. Jax likes to walk on the treadmill, but on his hind legs.
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.
