Officers with the Vancouver Police Department in Canada have proven once again that underneath a law enforcement officer’s tough-looking uniform is a heart of gold.
Recently, 66 dogs and puppies were rescued from a puppy mill in Langley. The SPCA was suddenly overloaded with animals in need of love and care.
The dogs, who had been living in deplorable conditions, had a number of ailments as a result of living in tiny, overcrowded cages. Aside from psychological damages, there were physical signs of neglect: missing eyes, broken limbs and malnourishment.
According to Sgt. Randy Fincham, who offered to foster one of the dogs, the department’s K-9 unit was ready to help in any way it could. “Our dog handlers wanted to reach out and support these dogs, who are like kin to their four-legged colleagues,” he says.
Officers in the unit elected to donate $1,300 of their overtime pay toward the cost of caring for these dogs.
The donation was greatly appreciated, as was the show of support. Worth much more than the dollar amount was the human generosity that went with it.
