Sheriff David A. Weaver has commissioned a tribute to all K-9’s that have served the citizens of Douglas County by bravely dedicating their lives to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office (DCSO).
On August 31, 2011 @ 2:30 pm Douglas County Sheriff David A. Weaver will unveil the Tribute to all K-9 heroes; it is located in the Robert A. Christensen Justice Center on the wall of the main floor hallway near the courtrooms. The wall will have a picture of every K-9 that has served Douglas County. (Please see the attached artist rendering of the wall) A duplicate wall has been paid for and placed in the reception area of the Franktown Animal Clinic, which is where our K-9s receive medical care.
The Douglas County K-9 Unit was established in 1989 with three K-9s. Since its inception, over 16 K-9s have been commissioned to serve Douglas County.
Sheriff David A. Weaver says we owe them a debt of gratitude for helping to keep our community safe. The wall would not be possible without the dedication of the K-9’s and the generous support from the Friends of Douglas County K-9. The Friends of Douglas County K-9 is a newly formed nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise money for the K-9 Unit.
The Friends of Douglas County K-9′s will be hosting “A Howling Good Time” Gala that will be held at:
Cielo at Castle Pines on Wednesday, October 12, 2011. This gala will celebrate the retirement of two heroic DCSO K-9s, Axel and Leon.
