Deptford Twp K9 Hot Car Device

$440 of $1,400 goal

Raised by 15 people in 24 months
Maureen Koplow  Woodbury,
With all the snow falling outside, it’s hard to believe it will ever be 90 degrees, but we all know that summer will eventually arrive. When the temperatures rise, so will the danger of dogs dying in hot cars. Every year, there are numerous reports around the country of dogs who succumb to extreme temperatures, and too often those reports include police K-9’s.

There are devices that can prevent these tragic deaths, but they are expensive and the budgets of many police departments simply cannot handle the cost.

Save The Animals Foundation (STAF) has started a funding effort to outfit a new car for the Deptford Township Police Department with a “K9 Hot-N-Pop” unit. It sounds like a cute name, but its purpose is seriously life-saving. Deptford’s K9 officer Aron has recently retired to live with his owner/handler Officer Adam Ziegler, and his position has been passed along to Titan. Aron is enjoying his retirement, and Titan will be riding with Adam in the new car, equipped with the “K9 Hot-N-Pop” unit. But money needs to be raised to help pay for it. The cost, including installation, is $1373, and that’s a lot of money.

We’re asking for donations as soon as possible. The car is being outfitted as we speak, and payment will be due soon. Any amount will be appreciated as we work together to reach our goal.

You may donate on STAF’s Active Giving account at  http://www.active.com/donate/stafnj
or our Go Fund Me account at http://www.gofundme.com/DeptfordK9HotCar

You may also send a check directly to STAF, P.O. Box 5689, Deptford, NJ 08096 (note that it is for the Deptford K9 Hot Car fund).

STAF is a501(c)(3) nonprofit - tax ID #22-3478554

Thanks for your support!

We have reached our goal! With $440 on the Go Fund Me Page ($400.78 after Go Fund Me's fees) and $1195 in donation checks, we are able to pay for the "Hot-N-Pop" device! We are donating $1595.78 to the Deptford Twp K9 Association. Any money left over after purchase and installation of the device may be used by the association for other expenses related to the dogs, including medical care for retired K9's.

Checks are coming to our P.O. address and lots of people are sharing our message. We'll keep this fund going until the end of March, so get your donations in ASAP!
And by the way, the most important message we can send is to NEVER leave your dog (or child) in a hot car. The temperature outside can be as low as 70 degrees, and the inside of the car can jump up to 90 or higher in a matter of minutes. Cracking the windows an inch or so does NOT cool the car. Warm weather is coming soon, and we want ALL dogs to be safe!
