1-800-PetMeds sends well-deserved goodie boxes to the Pasco Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit
For well over 100 years, dogs have been trained and used by law enforcement agencies to aid in police work. Today, K-9 units are vital members of the police force. These four-legged officers, such as the dogs of the Pasco Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, work hard every day to keep our neighborhoods and families safe and secure.
Intelligence, aggression, strength, and an acute sense of smell are just a few of the traits that police dogs possess. Some police dog breeds include the German Short-Haired Pointer, Bloodhound, Boxer, Labrador Retriever, German Shepherd, Doberman, and Rottweiler. In Pasco County, Florida, specifically, the Pasco Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit consists of German Shepherds, Bloodhounds, Retrievers, and more. These dogs are rigorously trained to carry out many difficult tasks. In addition to tracking and capturing criminals, they also track and rescue missing or abducted people. They also assist with warrant sweeps and sniff out drugs, contraband, bombs, and other explosives.
Without asking anything in return, these loyal dogs risk their lives daily to serve and protect their deputies and citizens. Hard work should be rewarded, and that’s why we sent the 19 active dogs in the K-9 unit of the Pasco Sheriff’s Office a well-deserved package filled with goodies to help keep them healthy and strong. The boxes were filled with the PetKit Smart Bowl, PetKit P2 Activity Tracker, 1-800-PetMeds® VitaChews for Dogs, 1-800-PetMeds® Ear Cleanser, 1-800-PetMeds® Super Pure Omega 3, 1-800-PetMeds® Oatmeal & Aloe Vera Shampoo, 1-800-PetMeds® Max Doll Toy, Grizzly Salmon Fillet Treats, 1-800-PetMeds® 2 Gourmet Dog Biscuits, and a customized note of appreciation.
These dogs are supported not only by their partners but also through Pasco Sheriff’s Charities, a nonprofit organization that supports many great causes in Pasco County. Visit PascoSheriffCharities.org to find out more about the K-9 team and how to show your appreciation for their hard work.
