About the Campaign
K9 Xena is a seven-year-old Dutch Shepard certified in Patrol, Tracking/Trailing, and Narcotics. Xena is partnered with Patrolman Fox of the Postville IA Police Department. Xena is handler Fox’s shadow and goes everywhere with her. Xena enjoys yearly family vacations, playing fetch nonstop, and any water-related activity. Xena has been tremendously helpful and successful in the community from narcotic finds, tracking missing persons, and protecting her handler. Xena is not only a valuable member of the Police Department but also a member of Officer Fox’s family, Xena sleeps in bed next to Officer Fox every night. Xena has a love for children and enjoys any demonstrations where kids are around and all the pets she can get.
Here’s how this equipment both helps Xena and Ptlm Fox 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.
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.
