Here’s how this equipment both helps Reno and Officer Pekarek 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.
K9 Reno is a 6-year-old Belgian Malinois certified in Patrol and Narcotics. He is assigned to Officer Kyler Pekarek of the Yankton, South Dakota Police Department. Reno loves chasing his Kong, laying on the couch, and playing with Kyler’s personal dog.
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.
