Here’s how this equipment both helps Lacey and Chief Deputy Bryant on the job.
An in-squad kennel allows the K9 to be safely transported when on the job! It fits securely into the rear seat of the squad and provides roll-cage level protection while a K9 is at work, on the road, and away from home.
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 Lacey is a 7-year-old Labrador Retriever. Lacey is a U.S.P.C.A. certified narcotics K9 and she is assigned to Chief Deputy Spencer Bryant of the Houston County TN Sheriff’s Office. After beginning her law enforcement career at a neighboring Sheriff’s Office, K9 Lacey was given to the agency in 2014 and is currently the only active K9 in the department. She was originally rescued from a shelter and then began training in narcotics detection. K9 Lacey can detect Heroin, Methamphetamine, Cocaine, and Marijuana. She loves to work and be around people, especially kids.
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.
