• Students raise $1,700 to replace Anderson police dogs

    September 05, 2012 No comments

    Students at a central Indiana school have given their city’s police department more than $1,700 toward replacing two police dogs that died from violent confrontations this summer.

    The kindergarten through fifth-grade students at Anderson Preparatory Academy raised the money by bringing in pennies for a competition. Special education assistant Michelle Dreschler tells The Herald Bulletin officers had brought the dogs to the school before and the students were excited to help out.

    A businessman has also donated $20,000 to help replace the dogs, which typically cost between $10,000 and $12,000 each.

    One of the dogs was euthanized last month after being shot in the face by a man it was tracking. The other mistook an officer as an aggressor during a July standoff and had to be shot.
