WEAVERVILLE, Calif. - The Trinity County Sheriff’s Office is asking the public for donations that will go towards purchasing two new K9 officers, this after two of their K9s either passed away or got sick.
On a Facebook page Tuesday, the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office shared in a post about the depletion of their K9 unit after K9 “Kash” passed away from an unexpected illness and K9 “Johnny” got really sick.
Although “Johnny” is hospitalized and will hopefully recover, deputies are doubtful about his ability to return to work with his handler Sergeant Trujillo.
Deputies are accepting donations to assist their K9 department, by either mailing a check or money order out to the Trinity County Sheriff’s Auxiliary at:
• PO Box 427, Weaverville, CA 96093
Both “Kash” and "Johnny" have aided deputies in arresting hundreds of dangerous criminals, located an abundant amount of illegal narcotics and conduct service showings at local schools, according to the Trinity County Sheriff’s Office.
The new K9s will be assigned to Sergeant Trujillo and Sergeant Cavalli.
