Bodie still improving...

Bodie now listed in "fair" condition

The Sacramento Canine Police Association is accepting donations to assist with the medical expenses for Police Officer Bodie, who was injured in the line of fire last week.  Bodie is a police canine officer assigned to the Sacramento police department.

TO HELP WITH MEDICAL EXPENSES, you can dontate by clicking on the "Donate" tab on our home page or mail checks to Sacramento Police Canine Assoc. at 550 Bercut Dr, Sacramento, CA 95811

From the local paper...

Bodie was able to get out into the sunshine for a brief period of time on Sunday. With the support of his handler, who has not left his side, the dog is rallying.  Bodie’s medical expenses may run between $20,000 and $25,000. Offers to help with the K9’s medical expenses are coming in from the community, as are offers to purchase a new K9 for the department. A trained dog, K9 Echo, was purchased for the Sacramento Police Department by the Rotary Club of East Sacramento for $10,000 earlier this year.In a statement released on Facebook on May 23, Van Dusen said, “I want to thank everyone for all the support and well wishes for Bodie!!! I’ve spent every day and night with him on his bed since Friday and the improvement I’ve seen him make is amazing!! Tonight when I walked in out kennel he wagged his tail non stop and jumped up on me to put his paws on my shoulder and lick my face! That’s a long way from driving him to the vet with lights and sirens and begging him to hold on. He truly saved my life in that back yard that day and I can’t thank him enough! Please keep Bodie in your thoughts for a speedy recovery. We’re looking forward to being out there catching bad guys soon!!”
