On 03-19-10 the Folsom Police K9 Unit joined with the Wolf 101.9 Pure Country radio station at the UC Davis Children’s Hospital for their “Wolf Hunt For A Cure Radiothon.” The Wolf and the Children’s Miracle Network have teamed up to generate funds and awareness programs for the benefit of member hospitals and foundations. The UC Davis Children’s Hospital treats children with severe, life threatening illnesses, including children with cancer, children who have suffered severe traumatic injuries, and children who require surgery to correct congenital anomalies. Currently the hospital has inadequate facilities to serve all of the children needing pediatric care.
The Folsom K9 Unit has already built a strong relationship with the UC Davis Children’s Hospital, where once a month at least one member from the Folsom Police K9 Unit visits the hospital with there K9 partner. The K9 Officers also give the children a stuffed German Shepherd toy during their visits (the stuffed toys are purchased with funds from the Folsom Police Canine Officer’s Association).
