Here’s how this equipment both helps Kilo and Deputy Thompson 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 Kilo is a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois certified in Patrol, Tracking/Trailing, and Narcotics. He is assigned to Deputy Reese Thompson of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office in Steubenville, Ohio. Kilo has been on active duty less than six months and has already made numerous finds during traffic stops and has been deployed on a tracking incident. Kilo is a great asset to the agency and the Jefferson County community!
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.
