Jazzo is a 5 year old K-9 officer that joined our organization 2 yrs ago. It is now time for his owner/ handler, Matt, to move onto another job. Matt has owned Jazzo since he was a puppy and is now faced with the decision to surrender Jazzo to his employer or pay thousands of dollars to cover the cost of his training as a K-9 officer. Those of us who have had the joy of seeing Matt and Jazzo work together to keep our facility safe feel that it would be a terrible loss for Jazzo to lose his handler and for Matt and his family to lose their beloved dog. As sad as it is to know that we may not have the joy of seeing Jazzo at work any longer, it is more saddening to think that Matt and his son will be without a member of their family. All the money contributed to this effort will go toward Matt's purchase of Jazzo from our organization. Time is of the essence because there is only a week from today until Matt has to inform our management of his decision.
