For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – The Tomahawk Police Department (TPD) is selling customized stuffed animals resembling K-9 Pipo in an effort to raise funds for the department’s K-9 unit.
A post on TPD’s Facebook page said the dolls are available at the police department, 219 W. Somo Ave., for a donation of $20.00, but additional donations are appreciated.
“Every animal sold will go towards funding the K-9 unit,” the post stated. “These funds will assist us with trainings, specialized equipment, recertifications and for future K-9s at Tomahawk PD.”
TPD Chief Al Elvins said 40 of the 100 Pipo stuffed animals had been sold as of Wednesday, Jan. 11, but more could be ordered if necessary.
