About the Campaign
Here’s how this equipment both helps Mack and Deputy Ross on the job.
The door pop allows the K9 handler officer to remotely unlatch the door so their K9 may exit the squad car and come to their aid, should a call for service take a turn for the more dangerous; while, the heat alarm system monitors the interior air temperature of the squad car and sets off the sirens, lights, alarms, and rolls down the windows of the car to help ensure that a K9 doesn’t suffer from heat trauma if the temperature rises into a dangerous threshold.
K9 Mack is a three-year-old Labrador Retriever certified in Tracking/Trailing and Narcotics. He is assigned to Deputy Timothy Ross of the Perry County Sheriff’s Office located in New Lexington, Ohio. Mack is a very energetic labrador; however, when not on duty, he loves to compete for Dad’s attention for “lap time.” He loves to swim, play, and chase anything that resembles a ball.
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.
