A Valparaiso animal hospital is stepping up to raise money for the Valparaiso Police Department’s K-9 Unit.
Vale Park Animal Hospital has been holding $5 canine nail trims on alternate Saturdays since July as a lead-up to Sunday’s fundraiser, the Canine Cop Crusade. The nail trims raised more than $1,000, veterinarian Randi Olson said.
She got the idea for the nail trims from clinic staff members who have been involved in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life, and decided to do the same for the K-9 Unit. The clinic provides services to the dogs in the unit free of charge.
The open house includes a dunk tank for the clinic’s veterinarians, a silent auction, and a look behind the scenes at the animal hospital.
Olson hopes the animal hospital’s efforts raise $6,151. The amount, she said, was inspired by the pet store Pet Supplies Plus, which donates food for the dogs and had a fundraiser for them that generated more than $6,000.
