Be apart of Top Dog’s Second Annual K9 Angel Tree.
K9 officers are killed in the line of duty every month in this country,” said Jennie Fuller, owner of Top Dog Training and Resort. “The K9 Angel tree is our way to honor their sacrifice and service.” While the needs of K9 Officers are taken care of by their individual departments, Fuller added, the donations to the K9 Angel Tree, made in honor of the individual k9s, are a great way of sharing with their fellow animals in need this holiday season.
Choosing a K9 Officer as your K9 Angel is also a great way for the community to get to know the police dogs that serve their community, Fuller added. “It’s important for K9 Officers to make that connection with their community. Police Dogs aren’t something to be afraid of, unless you’re doing something wrong. They are heroes that dedicate their lives to helping others in need and deserve a generous ‘thanks’ for the work they do.”
Like the policemen and policewomen who train and handle them, K9 officers are on duty 24/7 to make your community a safer place. To honor their service, Top Dog Training and Resort is once again partnering with local Police and K9 Officers this holiday season to host its second annual K9 Angel Tree.
You can help celebrate the K9 Officers in your community, while contributing to local animal shelters that depend upon your donations to help them continue to care for the many animals that come in each year.
The ornaments on the K9 Angel tree, located in the Top Dog Training and Resort lobby, give donors a chance to choose which K9 Officer they want to honor. For example, there’s Jett, a 2-year-old German Shepherd that is currently certified in detecting narcotics. and patrolling the streets to keep the bad guys off of them. Jett’s Christmas Wish is for donations to be made to the Orange County Animal Shelter to help his fellow K9s in need. As a special holiday treat, each donor who comes in to Top Dog Training and Resort to be part of the program will be able to take home a special K9 Angel Tree ornament featuring a picture and description of their K9 of choice.
All donations for this year’s K9 Angel Tree are being collected at Top Dog Training and Resort, 2112 Orange Grove Road Hillsborough, during regular business hours (Mon-Sat, 7 Am to 7 PM and Sunday 1 to 7 PM). Local Police Officers, along with the K9 Officers and Top Dog employees, will drop off the donations to the Orange County Animal Shelter the week before Christmas.
