Officer Dennis Funari with K-9 Chico
Due to the success of the K-9 unit, support of the community, and generous donations received by the Kiwanis Club, we have acquired three new dogs: Ricker, Echo and Max.
The dogs and their handlers, Ptl. Dennis Funari, Josh Frey and JP Toth, completed their training and were officially sworn in on Monday, December 11.
The Westlake Kiwanis' Westlake Kiwanis Youth Foundation Inc. started a “Canine Fund” in late 2016 and has raised approximately $36,000 for the acquisition, training, and deployment of the unit. They are continuing to accept donations.
Thank you to everyone who has given so generously!
