The Saskatoon Police Service Canine Unit will make a donation tomorrow to assist the blind in Saskatoon and area.
Recently the Canine Unit played host to the 2008 Canadian Police Dog Championships. Officers and their police dogs competed in a variety of events including agility, obedience, and criminal apprehension. The championships were open to the public and free of charge. Money raised from program sales and community sponsorship will now be donated to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. The CNIB will use the funds to assist clients in guide dog training.
The media is invited to attend as a cheque is presented Thursday, August 28, 2008, at 10:30 a.m. at the CNIB - 1705 McKercher Drive.
