Your Chance to Help K9 Officers That Help You
This Saturday will go to the dogs. K9's working for the Yakima County Sheriff's Office and The Yakima Police Department and you can help.
Everyone living in the Yakima Valley has a chance to support K-9 Officers who work for the Yakima Police Department and the Yakima County Sheriff's Office on Saturday. The event is called "Kome Out For K9's." It's set to happen Saturday, June 26 at Tailgaters in Selah from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
The event is sponsored by the K9 Foundation of Yakima Valley.
An auction is planned to help raise funds with the auctioneer being Sheriff Bob Udell. Drink specials, a raffle, a selfie station food and fun. Plus a chance to meet all the K9 officers who are now working the streets of Yakima. The fundraiser is a big boost to agencies that employ the K9 officers because all the support comes from private donations. In an effort to help support the K9 programs in February of this year the new non-profit K9 Foundation of Yakima Valley was created to support Yakima County law enforcement agencies K-9 programs. Did you know unlike many other law enforcement agencies around the country, Yakima County depends upon private donations to fund local K9 programs.
Thus the reason for the fundraiser "Kome Out For K9's" Saturday, June 26 at Tailgaters at 110 East Third Avenue in Selah.
