The Sheriff’s Office took a few minutes this morning to recognize one of our local businesses for their efforts to help out our K9 Frankie. Kamrie and Greg Hodgeman of Paws and Claws in Belfast are planning a grand opening of a new Belfast location and as a part of the opening they wanted to give something back to their community. After some thought they decided that they would start a GoFundMe page to raise funds for a bulletproof vest for our K9 Frankie and Belfast PD’s K9 Dex. Kamrie and Greg have pledged to match the first $500.00 in donations and that goal has already been reached. Sheriff Trafton presented a certificate of appreciation to Kamrie, Greg and all the ladies of Paws & Claws this morning. Pictured is Sheriff Trafton, Greg, Kamrie, Manager Kaili, Anna, Adrienne, Sheila and Charlie the Shihtzu and Leland the seizure alert service Dachshund!! We appreciate the efforts of the entire Paws & Claws crew and we know Frankie will appreciate their gift!!
