Sequatchie County Sheriff’s Department Receives Donation for Dual-Purpose Narcotics Detection/Passive Tracking Dog

Project K-9 Hero, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing medical assistance to retired Police K-9s and Military Working Dogs, proudly announces its latest initiative in support of law enforcement. Founder and CEO Jason Johnson has confirmed that Project K-9 Hero will be donating the necessary funding to the Sequatchie County Sheriff’s Office for the acquisition of a Dual-purpose Narcotics Detection/Passive Tracking Dog.

Expressing the organization’s commitment to local communities, Jason Johnson remarked, “With our National Headquarters in Whitwell, TN, we want to make sure that we are a good partner to our local law enforcement agencies. We donated a dog to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office in 2022, and now want to make sure that we give back to our neighboring county of Sequatchie to help keep its citizens safe.”

The official ceremony for the presentation of the funding will take place Thursday, March 28th, 2024, at 2:00 PM Central at the Sequatchie County Sheriff’s Office in Dunlap, TN. Members of the community are encouraged to attend and witness this impactful event firsthand to learn more about how the newest, four-legged member of the Sheriff’s Department will work for the community.

Project K-9 Hero is dedicated to ensuring the well-being and quality of life for retired Police K-9s and Military Working Dogs across the nation. Through the donations of its generous supporters and partnerships, the nonprofit organization provides essential medical care, prescription food, rehabilitation, rehoming, and end-of-duty services to these courageous animals and their families.
