SO FRIDAY. JANUARY 27- MONDAY, JANUARY 30, 2012 CAP[ LIF Cape Gazette Red Hats and Friend donat to K9 heroes group On Dec. 7 Red Hats and Friends gathered Dec. 7 at 1776 Steak House in Rehoboth to cele- brate life and sisterhood at their annual Christmas party. Entertainment was provided by Bob Lougheed, known for his fabulous voice and EMs Presley impersonations. Funds were raised through a Chinese auction headed up by queen mothers Su- san Straughen, Dot Borek and Sue Toomey, and a 50/50 raffle organized by Geri Newsome and Loretta Langford. In keeping with the theme of Remember the Lesser Kingdom and Their Needs in 2012, set by event founder and hostess Queen Mother Maxine McWhorter Ungerbuehler, pro- ceeds from the two activities in the amount of $300 were gifted to The National K-9 Working Dog Inc., a local nonprofit estab- lished to enhance and improve the lives of police K-9s in their retirement years. The group was founded in 2010 after organizers learned that police K-9s are considered equipment, not officers, and therefore are not entitled to any medical or financial benefits once they are discharged from duty. Their care becomes the sole responsibility of their cur- rent handler. If the original han- dlers cannot afford the upkeep of these dogs after they can no longer work, the only legal op- tion is euthanasia.

The group doesn't believe K9 heroes should have to suffer or meet an untimely death because of their handler's lack of personal funds. These K-9s protected the general public in the line of duty, and the NK9WD members be- lieve it is now the responsibility of the public to help protect them.
