Thank you to everyone that has shared Blu's story and donated to his fund. We reached our goal and can no longer accept donations. Blu and I can not express how greatful we are that he will be getting the dental work he deserves. I am in total awe of all the people that supported us. Thank you again!
MY NAME IS STEVEN MORRISON AND I AM IN NEED OF YOUR HELP. I AM CURRENTLY A K9 OFFICER IN WASHINGTON, DC AREA. My K9 PARTNER BLU HAS RECENTLY BROKEN 3 OF HIS CANINE TEETH AND THE 4TH ONE IS SCORED. HE WILL NEED TO HAVE 3 ROOT CANALS AND CROWNS PLACED ON ALL 4 TEETH. THE COST FOR THIS PROCEDURE IS $6800.00 .
THE DEPARTMENT HAS COME TO THE DECISION THAT IT WOULD BE IN THEIR BEST INTEREST TO RETIRE BLU, RATHER THAN TAKE ON THE RESPONSIBILITY OF FIXING HIS TEETH. THIS IS NOT A LONG TERM INJURY THAT WILL REQUIRE ANY ADDITIONAL TREATMENT ONCE THE CROWNS ARE INSTALLED. AFTER HIS DENTAL PROCEDURE HE WILL BE ABLE TO RETURN TO FULL DUTY STATUS WITH NO RESTRICTIONS.
BLU IS A THREE YEAR OLD MALINOIS WHO HAS BEEN TRAINED IN PATROL WORK. HE HAS PLACED 12TH IN THE USPCA PD1 FIELD TRIALS IN 2012. HE RECENTLY PLACED 3RD OVERALL IN THE REGION 3 FIELD TRAILS. BLU HAS NATIONALLY CERTIFIED THIS YEAR AT THE USPCA NATIONALS. BLU IS A LOYAL PARTNER WHO HAS MANY YEARS LEFT TO GIVE TO THE POLICE DEARTMENT AND THE CITIZENS OF WASHINGTON DC IF GIVEN THE CHANCE.
BLU AND I NEED YOUR HELP IN KEEPING HIM AN ACTIVE MEMBER OF OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT.
PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING TO HELP MY PARTNER.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS DONATED, SHARED BLU'S STORY AND OFFERED WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO ME AND MY PARTNER. WORDS CAN NOT BEGIN TO EXPRESS HOW GRATEFUL BLU AND I ARE. YOUR SUPPORT AND GENEROSITY WILL ALLOW BLU TO GET THE DENTAL WORK HE DESERVES AND STILL ENABLE HIM TO BE A PRODUCTIVE MEMBER OF MY DEPARTMENT. ANY ADDITIONAL MONEY COLLECTED WILL BE PUT INTO A FUND TO USE TOWARD FUTURE MEDICAL CARE OF THE PATROL K9 UNIT.
