Kroger and Milk-Bone Donate Police Dogs to Five Departments

August 08, 2002  | 

Kroger and Milk-Bone have teamed to sponsor the donation of dogs to five local law enforcement canine units, including the Cincinnati Police Department; the Craig (Colo.) Police Department; the Danville (Ind.) Police Department; the Houston Police Department; and the Columbus (Ohio) Police Department. The Danville Police Department lost a dog earlier this year in a traffic accident.

"The Milk-Bone Police Dog Donation program helps local law enforcement agencies add highly trained dogs at no cost to taxpayers," said Don McGeorge, Kroger executive vice president. "Since these police dogs can cost more than $5,000 each, this program is often the only way a canine unit can add a dog without exceeding its annual budget."

Purchases of Milk-Bone products from participating Kroger and King Soopers stores made the donations possible. The Milk-Bone Police Dog program also donated funds to the Ann Arbor (Mich.) Police Department to purchase Kevlar vests for its canine unit.

For more information on police dog donations, contact Alison Marshall of The Wilson Group for Milk-Bone at +1-972-444-8443 x247.
