Heroes are something to be celebrated.
That’s why the American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter each year singles out a cast who has performed selfless and courageous acts.
These Red Cross Real Heroes were nominated by the public during 2010 and are being honored today.
Puyallup police K-9 officer Doug Kitts and his partner, Daro, will receive Real Heroes Award today from the American Red Cross Mount Rainier Chapter.
They will be recognized with a Red Cross Law Enforcement Heroes Award for their apprehension of an armed shoplifter.
“It shows that our officers and K-9s go above and beyond the call of duty at any given moment, and that we never know what we’re faced with from day to day,” police spokesman Dave McDonald said.
