K-9 UNIT FUNDRAISER CAR WASH
April 5th, 2008
PINAL COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE

The Fundraiser Car Wash on April 5th, 2008 to buy a training "Bite Suit" was extremely sucessful. We collected a total of $2,070 Dollars thanks to the generous donation of Gold Canyon residents Carol and Jay Mowat of $1,200 (the amount to purchase the Bite Suit). Jay retired from the Los Angeles Police Department, always admired and respected the work of the K-9 Unit.
