Meet Cartoush, a current K9 officer in Peru.

This is Cartoush, a working dog with a 2-year career in the Peru Police Department.  He was an upstanding K9 officer.  However, Police Chief See More


It's my birthday! And I want to help our animals. Because our local Miami County Community Foundation (MCCF) cannot accept funds raised in this method, I have to accept it directly and hand it over to them. Thanks, Internal Revenue Service regulations!

I was originally going to direct these funds to our local shelter, which truly is underfunded and needs the money.  However, I learned that our Peru Police Department(PPD) received two K9 officers which were underfunded.  They are making payments on them.

I find this situation abhorrent. 

My little fundraiser has been minimally effective, and I am so sorry for that.  I had hoped to raise more, and my small target of $250 had seemed so achieveable.  So, I am keeping this fundraiser open in the hopes of raising a little more to help the PPD get these dogs paid for a bit sooner. 

Please help us get this accomplished.  Just a little bit - a tiny little bit from you, each small donation helps in a big way.  My heartfelt thanks just for reading this plea through.

Just a little tiny bit...
