K-9 Course Rehab Successful
The Salem Police Department and the Salem Police Foundation held a K-9 Course Rehab Day on June 4. Temperatures of nearly 100 degrees didn’t deter volunteers from preparing the ground, building and painting the course structures that help prepare our K-9 officers for work in our community. A big thank you to Mount Angel Meat Company for donating a wonderful barbecue lunch and to White Oak Construction for helping obtain equipment and supplies. Officers brought out Enzo and Jake who practiced on the course. The following volunteers worked on the project: Eric Fietz (6 Hours), Dennis Miller (6 Hours), Steven Rice (5 Hours), Mary Louise VanNatta (5 Hours), Ryan Gail (5 Hours), Dan Wellert (9 Hours), Chris Wellert (4 Hours), Rebecca Wellert (6 Hours), Sierra Wellert (6 Hours), Linda Stout (5 Hours).
A generous anonymous donor surprised the group with much of the supplies needed for the K-9 Officers.
The group will now pursue raising the $3,000 needed for course lighting. To donate, visit www.SalemPoliceFoundation.org.
