**Gumz Farms Sponsors K9 Unit ** The Marquette County Sheriff’s Office would like to recognize Gumz Farms for their support of the Sheriff’s Office K9 Unit. Gumz Farms recently made a generous donation to the K9 unit, allowing the purchase of 300 plush replicas of K9’s Axel and Blackjack. On October 2nd, Captain Mike Kowalski and K9 Axel along with Sergeant Brian Noll and K9 Blackjack visited the Gumz Farms located in Endeavor, in order to personally thank them for the donation. They are pictured here with Roderick and Richard Gumz. These plush K9’s are available for purchase directly from the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office, at the cost of $20 each, or $30 for the set of two. For those who purchase the set of two, you will also receive a Marquette County Sheriff K9 T-shirt (while sizes/colors/supplies last). All proceeds from their sales will be used to fund our K9 unit, which continues to operate completely on donations and fundraising efforts. To make a purchase, please stop and see one of our administrative assistants during regular business hours.
We would like to thank Mike and Cathy's Good Old Days and all of the ATV riders who participated in this year's ride. The ride consisted of 16 machines and raised $450 for the K9 unit.
Neshkoro Resident Donates for New K9 Stab & Bullet Proof Vest On September 13, 2018, Steve Stadler of Neshkoro contacted the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office and wanted to talk about their police dog program. Captain Mike Kowalski and Steve connected and planned for a date for Steve to meet one of the police dogs. Steve mentioned he recently had contact with a patrol deputy at his residence. He said Deputy Blake Brandner was very social and professional during his interaction with him. It was his contact in early September with Deputy Brander that prompted him to donate to Marquette County. Steve said he had been working on saving his money for over two years to donate money to an animal organization. On September 18, 2018, Steve arrived at the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office and met with Chief Deputy Joe Konrath, Captain Kowalski, Deputy Brandner and K9 Axel. Steve was able to interact with K9 Axel and told us a few stories of when he was in the Vietnam War. Steve proudly served our Country as a member of the Navy from 1970 to 1976. He worked as a Damage Control Firefighter from 1972 to 1973 in Vietnam. Steve said he had several friends who were K9 handlers in the war and wanted to give back to a working dog. Steve donated $1,000 to the Marquette County Crime Stoppers Inc. K9 Fund for the purchase of a new stab and bullet-proof vest for the next Marquette County Sheriff’s Office K9. Wisconsin Vest-A-Dog (Janesville, WI) assisted with the vesting of K9 Axel and K9 BlackJack when they were new on patrol in Marquette County.
