On Tuesday, April 2, 2019, the Marion County Sheriff's Office Bloodhound, K9 Kilo, was shot by an unknown subject. K9 Kilo was rushed to emergency treatment in neighboring North Carolina. At this time, it is unclear if Kilo will be able to keep his leg or if it will have to be amputated. The MCSO loves him very much and wants the best care for him. We do not want money to be an issue and we need your help. Funds will be used for Kilo's medical bills, any future care, and special supplies he may need. Community support means everything to us. Kilo is our search and rescue K9. He is used to help find missing persons and is a huge hit at our elementary schools.
