GREEN BAY, WI-- The Bay East Animal Hospital has been caring for K-9 officers for many years.
The annual fundraiser buys things like bullet-proof and stab-proof vests for K-9’s in Brown County.
The dog wash and silent auction lets staff members bathe the dogs and give them a day of pampering.
Over the years the group has raised more than $56,000.
“We actually just purchased a monument that’s going to be placed in front of the sheriff’s department with a majority of the money raised from the dog wash here,” said Zachary Rousch, of the Brown County Sheriff’s Department.
Demonstrations from the K-9 unit were also performed to show off speed and precision when apprehending a criminal, and when searching for narcotics or bombs.
