Deptford Twp K9 Hot Car Device
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.

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!
