Here’s how this equipment both helps Tyson and Patrolman First Class Boturla 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 Tyson is a 3-year-old German Shepherd certified in Patrol, Tracking/Trailing, and Explosives. He is partnered with Patrolman First Class Kyle Boturla of the Point Pleasent Beach, New Jersey Police Department. Tyson is PFC Boturla’s first K9 and the strong bond made with Tyson, in a very short period of time, amazes Officer Boturla. K9 Tyson is very hard working and loyal. When not on duty, Tyson is extremely playful around his family.

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.
