MetroVac Donates Pet Dryers to Support Police K-9 Units
Mamaroneck Police Officer Ozzie Ramos and his canine, Vincent, were among those who recently received donated pet dryers from MetroVac.
MetroVac donated pet dryers to the United States Police Canine Association (USPCA). MetroVac attended the association’s regional training day in Suffern, N.Y. on Aug. 16 to donate another dryer.
Oakland, N.J.-based MetroVac has been donating pet dryers to K-9 units for the past 20 years. The dryers are used by K-9 units in the USPCA’s region 7 which encompasses all of New York State, as well as parts of New Jersey and Connecticut. MetroVac donates about four dryers per year and provides free upkeep of the dryers as needed
“Sometimes, in the course of their work, the dogs come in contact with harmful substances on their coats or bodies, and their handlers need to groom or wash them immediately,” said Suffern K-9 officer Lou Venturini. “Having these donated dryers from MetroVac allows us to keep our canines healthy so they can do their very important work.”
“We are honored to support the life-saving work done by the K-9 units in the tri-state area,” said David Stern, MetroVac’s vice president of marketing. “When we see the outcome of their hard work, whether it be the collaring of a criminal or the recovery of a lost child, it is very rewarding.”
MetroVac was honored by the USPCA for its ongoing commitment to support the K-9 units through its generous donations of dryers for two decades running.
