Letter to the Editor: Support for police dog
Last Wednesday’s Gazette ran a report on the Homer City Borough council meeting where a member of the police department spelled out a proposal to purchase a police dog (“Council seeks funding for canine police officer”).
As I see it, instead of looking for donations from the public since a lot of us are already tapped out, surely a veterinarian could or would step to the plate and give at least minimum health care for the dog.
As for food, that would be a good gift or advertisement for a good cause by some pet store or grocery store.
I would even consider giving them my dog, but he is a little rude.
