I am so deeply honored to serve as emcee for this solemnly spectacular event! It's the K9 Drake Memorial Dedication Ceremony at Simmons Veterinary Hospital at Lake Worth and Haverhill Roads on Sunday, June 23rd starting at 6:15pm. You may remember K9 Drake was killed when intruders broke into his FHP Trooper partner's home last year. This memorial is not only to honor and remember Drake but all fallen law enforcement K-9s. Sheriff Rick Bradshaw will be there along with other VIPS, fellow police officers, Florida Highway Patrol, law enforcemnt K-9s and an honor guard. The ceremony, rightfully so, will include a 21-gun salute. Please come and join us for this history making event because this is the first memorial of its kind in our country. RSVP and more info is included on the invitation above.
Also, along with the memorial to honor our precious law enforcement K9s there is an effort to get legislation to provide benefits to these heroic dogs as we do all veterans. Please see below and join in this effort. Thank you!
