FAIRBORN — Fairborn Police Department’s K9 Units Bac and Nikko now have first aid bags on-hand thanks to fundraising efforts led by Fairborn High School JROTC students.
Students started the fundraising last school year and recently wrapped it up, raising $500 to purchase the bags. The bags can provide immediate first aid to the dogs. It started when Fairborn High School senior Eduardo Torres followed an Instagram page and decided that a fundraiser of this kind could serve as a community outreach effort, saying with a smile “who doesn’t like dogs?”
They received praise from Fairborn Police Department officials, including School Resource Officer Jim Hern.
The Fairborn Police Department brought a second K9 Unit, Nikko, to the force late June this year.
