Collection and Donations to Military Working Dogs and Handlers

Simsbury Police Department Animal Control Officer Mark Rudewicz launched the third annual collection and donation for military working dogs and their handlers who spend the holiday season abroad. Last year, ACO Rudewicz and the Department collected over 50 care packages that were sent to military K9 handlers and their partners in Iraq and Afghanistan. The packages included such items as hygiene products, food, dog toys, bedding and safety items. The donations came from Police Department and Town employees, residents, local businesses and employees of Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation. This year ACO Rudewicz expects to more than double the collection.tters and photos.
