Douglas County Sheriff’s Office K9 fund

This is a letter that was sent to my sister in Wenatchee, WA.  I think it’s a good cause and wanted to pass along the letter in case any of you would be interested in donating to this important cause.

K-9 Moose and Deputy Brent Pfannenstiel

The Douglas county Sheriff’s Office is committed to the peace and security of our community.  One of our greatest challenges is suppressing drug crimes.  As you well know, drug use has a clear connection with other criminal endeavors such as theft, fraud, driving under the influence, and serious crimes of violence.  An important tool available to law enforcement in this battle is police dogs (referred to as K-9’s) capable of detecting drugs through their keen sense of smell.  The dog we have now is nearing the end of her service life and we have started to plan for a replacement animal.  The training of the dog and handler, specialized equipment, veterinarian care, and upkeep supplies represent a large investment for our office.  We have set up a special line item in our budget to allow organizations and private citizens to contribute to our police dog program to help us ensure we don’t lose this vital law enforcement tool.  Your generous contribution to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office K-9 fund is greatly appreciated and an investment to keep our community safe and desirable.  Thank you for your support of county law enforcement.

Donations can be sent to:
Douglas County Sheriff
110 NE 2nd Street, Suite 200
East Wenatchee, WA 98802

Best regards,
Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal
