Our four-legged members were on hand to greet customers of Pet Smart in Whitby Thursday as we kicked off the official launch of the DRPS 2017 K-9 Calendar.
We are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the DRPS K-9 Unit and this year's calendar features stories about our dogs and a history of the unit.
All proceeds will be donated to Alzheimer Society Durham, Autism Ontario and The Animal Guardian Society (TAGS). Members of each agency joined our K-9 Unit to talk about the charitable initiative with the media and members of the public.
Last year over $25,000 was raised for local agencies.
The calendars are available to purchase for $20 at our Divisions and at the Police Education and Innovation Centre (located inside Durham College), as well as a variety of community partners including:
385 Bloor St W, Oshawa
2165 Durham Regional Hwy 2, Bowmanville
Police Credit Union
962 Kingston Rd, Pickering
Five Points Mall
285 Taunton Rd E, Oshawa
340 Taunton Rd E, Whitby
In Fringe Hair and Esthetics
1050 Simcoe St N, Oshawa
Members of our K-9 Unit will be at various locations across the region including Pet Smart in Whitby until the end of the year, check drps.ca, Twitter (@drps, @DRPS_K9) and Facebook (@OfficialDRPS) for updates.
You can pick up your calendar online here.
Thanks to everyone for your support!
