Run to benefit police dog
A 5K run Sept. 11 in Marion will raise money for a Marion police dog who ate an electric cord.
Officer Aaron Slater, Blue’s handler, told city councilmen that not much money was left from a 5K run last year because part of it had to be used to pay for emergency surgery after the Belgian Malinois ate an electric cord in February.
A consultation with Spur Ridge Vet Hospital followed by emergency surgery at Kansas State University’s veterinary hospital took a $2,357.67 bite out of funds raised for Blue’s care and needs.
Registration for the run will be at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 11. The run will begin at the ball fields north of the football stadium on Eisenhower Dr.
