The Marshalltown Police Department is hoping the public will pitch in to help replace two K-9 officers.
The department is trying to raise $60,000 towards that goal after two police dogs developed health problems.
The first was Creasy, who suffered a spinal embolism earlier this year robbing him of the use of his back legs. After months of rehab, Creasy is making progress but won’t return to the police force.
Another dog, Awol, has been diagnosed with a muscle disease attacking his rear legs. Awol is still working, but will likely retire soon.
The $60,000 goal will also help replace an aging K-9 squad car.
If you’d like to help, you can make a donation at the Marshalltown Police Department.
