Fido Bags

Sheriff Jean Stanfield announced today that the Burlington County Sheriff’s Department has received three “Fido Bags” for their canine teams as a donation from the Fetch Foundation.

“The Fido Bags will be used for our two explosive detection K-9’s Niko and Scottie along with our new drug detection K-9 Ringo,” said Sheriff Stanfield.

“While out working in the field Niko, Scottie and Ringo are at risk of injury and having the right equipment on hand is necessary to ensuring their safety,” explained Stanfield. “Thanks to the generosity of the Fetch Foundation, our officers will now be equipped with first aid kits in the event of any emergency, and better able to protect our K-9’s from harm.”

The Fido Bags include oxygen masks designed to fit canines. Additional first aid items include specialized burn sheets, bandages, rinsing saline, protective restraints, and other items for K-9 emergency care.

“Our K-9’s and their handlers put their lives on the line keeping our residents safe,” concluded Sheriff Stanfield. “We are proud to be able to equip our four-legged officers with these first aid bags so that they may remain safe during their mission to keep others safe.”

Three Fido Bags were donated to the Sheriff’s Department by the Fetch Foundation. The Fetch Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity based out of Scottsdale, Arizona that is dedicated to saving lives in the animal and human communities through innovative strategies and unique programs that supports, equips, and trains first responders.
