K9 Veterans Day

Union County Freeholder Chairman Linda Carter (2nd L) and Freeholder Bette Jane Kowalski present a resolution to Union County Sheriff Ralph Froehlich and members of the Sheriff’s K-9 Search and Rescue Unit in honor of K9 Veterans Day that recognizes all working dogs in the military and law enforcement. The Sheriff’s officers are (from center to right) Sgt. Brian Howarth, Officer Ryan Wilson, Officer Timothy O’Grady and Sgt. John Gillespie. They are joined by retired Sheriff’s K9 Bingo.

The Kong dog toy company donated toys to rK9 Bingo. KollerCraft Products donated three training toys to each of the 10 active Union County Sheriff’s K9 teams.

More toys from the companies were donated to The Seeing Eye in Morristown to help train service dogs in honor of K9 Git who was killed in the line of duty in September 2001.
