About the Campaign
K9 Maximus is a 4-year-old German Shepherd certified in Tracking/Trailing, Narcotics, and Protection. He is assigned to Patrolman Jeff Morris of the Pomeroy OH Police Department. Maximus is national and state certified which allows the team to assist officers in the neighboring state of West Virginia. He is one of two K9s in Chester County and is used by multiple agencies and available for call-outs to any agency. K9 Maximus is very social and used extensively for PR purposes. Unfortunately, K9 Maximus is working without a kennel insert at the moment because, due to budget issues, the Village of Pomeroy is not able to purchase an insert and the agency’s K9 program, like many in the nation, is funded through donations.
Here’s how this equipment both helps Maximus and Ptlm. Morris 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.
