FRB has joined forces with the Lyon County Sheriff's Office to help raise funds to increase their K9 division. Currently the LCSO has two working dogs trained in narcotics and suspect apprehension that cover all of Lyon County and one is nearing retirement!
Let's break this down.... Lyon County is the 4th largest county in the state of Nevada covering over 2,000 square miles and is home to over 59,000 citizens. Includes towns such as Yerington, Dayton, Fernley, Silver Springs, Stagecoach, and Smith Valley and we have two trained K9 units. It doesn't take a lot of thought to realize that this is a worthwhile cause!
LCSO needs $60,000 to purchase 2-3 additional K9 units and we are here to help them reach that goal. When we were initially approached, we got to work and contacted a few of our major contributors.
So far FRB has raised $10,000 to support this cause thanks to Wild West Chevrolet and Ally Bank! We presented a check to the LCSO K9 Program on December 1st.
We are working closely with the department and will keep an eye out for progress updates, because let's face it, who doesn't love dogs?!?
So I'll leave you with some info on the two K9's that are currently active.
This is Karma. She joined the LCSO in January of 2017 at 4 years old. She is currently 8 1/2 and looking forward to her retirement. She was trained by Deputy Tripp and gets all her ongoing training from him as well.
This brute of a Belgium Malinois is Borys. He joined the LCSO in late 2017 at 2 years old. He was trained by a kennel in North Carolina but looks forward to working with Deputy Tripp for all his ongoing training. Borys' presence in the department is thanks to a grant from Fire House Subs!
