Want to get your pet washed and help support police K-9s at the same time?
All Pet Food Express locations throughout the Bay Area will be holding their annual fundraising event to help sponsor the ‘Cover Your K9’ organization on Saturday, June 30, and Sunday, July 1.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from this event will go towards the purchase of bullet proof vests, K9 trauma kits, heat alarms for police vehicles and medical care for retired K9’s, according to coveryourk9.org
This organization donates all of these items to the police agencies that need it throughout Northern California.
Last year Cover Your K9 custom made vests for all six current Concord Police K9 crime fighters and one newly retired one. This was well over a $10,000 donation, according to a source at the department.
Pet Wash tokens, $15 each, can be purchased on scene. Show up to the on either day and you'll get to watch a demo presentation by Concord Police K-9s.
The deaprtment is planning on having a live demo at 11 a.m. and another at noon. Meet and greets are planned for in between, so bring your kids.
