Generous Houstonians opened their hearts and their wallets Thursday night at a fundraiser benefitting a non-profit group that supports local law enforcement.
K9s4COPS is composed of people who donate their time and effort to provide police agencies with a well-trained canine companion that can assist in crime fighting. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office is a recipient of the group’s generosity.
Founder KK Schiller says she started the organization after seeing a sad story on the news about a sheriff’s deputy whose four-legged partner was killed by two burglary suspects the police dog was chasing.
Like many departments, the HCSO does not always have enough resources to purchase and train dogs.
