VIDEO: Woman Donates 60 Police Dogs to Officers
NBC News reports on a woman who has helped raise money to donate more than 60 police dogs to deserving police officers.
Police K9’s do important work, no one disputes that, but many police and sheriff’s departments are cash crunched and have been forced to cut K9s from the budget. The highly trained dogs can cost upwards of $15,000, just for the initial purchase. Schiller saw a need and vowed to fill it. She started K9s4COPS, a non-profit organization that buys and trains the dogs and then gives them away to law enforcement officers. Her first fundraiser was in her backyard. She began knocking on corporate doors all over Texas, asking for donations.

Thank you Christy for your dedication and generosity! I provide gear and equipment for police/military K9s - my way of giving back to the community. I believe the K9 handlers are the nicest officers in the departments - it takes a lot of patience, skill and empathy to work with the K9s 24/7. Two officers in the car instead of one.
