SPECIAL EVENT! Fundraiser for the Racine Area Sheriff Office (R.A.S.O) K-9 Unit: June 25, 2016 in Union Grove, WI.

A K9 NW1/NW2/NW3 Level Sniff-FUN-Go event will be held to raise funds for the R.A.S.O. K9 Unit. There are no funds in the budget to cover the expenses of these incredible and much needed additions to the law enforcement community. The K9 Unit relies on donations from the community and various fundraising events.

Paws-A-Tive Choice, LLC is so excited to be hosting this very fun fundraiser. ALL proceeds will go to the K9 Unit to help pay for medical care, food and other necessities. The cost is $50 for NW1; $55 for NW2 and $60 for NW3  (per team).

Tshirts are being sold for the event and we will have a number of items that people can donate money to have their name put in a drawing for items of their choice in the "doggy bag draw". You do not have to be running your dog in the event to buy a Tshirt or donate money to have your name put in the drawing. Information on the items for the Doggy Bag Draw will be listed in May. If you would like to order a Tshirt, please email Kathy: Tshirts are $15 and all proceeds will go directly to the R.A.S.O. K-9 Unit.
