K9 fundraiser hits local convenience stores
The Doña Ana County Sheriff’s Department is still offering six varieties of plush K9 toys, available now at 20 area Pic Quik convenience stores. Each toy is $15 and all proceeds benefit the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics (LETR).
Each dog stands approximately nine inches tall, features the DASO badge of office and represents one of several popular K9 breeds: a bloodhound, a Belgian Malinois, a German shepherd, a yellow Labrador, a chocolate Labrador or a black Labrador.
A seventh collectible K9, a black German shepherd, was added this year. The Belgian Malinois was the first collectible K9, introduced in 2014.
The sheriff’s department has been a longtime active participant in LETR activities, including the Torch Run that passed through Las Cruces in May, heralding the start of the Special Olympics Summer Games in Albuquerque.
LETR fundraisers help to send New Mexico Special Olympics athletes to athletic events and to training conferences around the world.
