Men in blue get special gift for their four-legged officers

By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. The Dothan Police Department's four-legged officers received a special gift.

Care Animal Center presented emergency medical kits to the Dothan K-9 team.

Each K-9 had their own personalized kit with their name.

This was a way the center could say thank you for all the hard work Dothan Police does for the community.

"We have actually done this before but it's just out of our gratitude to what they do, they protect us and make it safe for us to do our job here and to raise a family in Dothan and that's the main reason why," William Duke, veterinarian at Care Animal Center said.

The kits were filled with basic medical supplies like bandages, antibiotics and a thermometer to treat the K-9's out in the field.
