The Dunn County Sheriffs Office picked up a big backer for the K-9 program.
The Farm Credit Services Community Grant Fund handed a check for $27,500 dollars to Dunn County Sheriff Gary Kuhn and his deputies in the county courthouse building on Aug. 6.
The money will be used toward getting a second K-9 unit operational with the county.
Currently, Cpl. Phil Wolf is slated to be the first deputy to become a K-9 patrol unit when his partner arrives in November, according to a spokesman for the sheriffs office in Manning.
The money from the Farm Credit Services Community Grant Fund will go for a second K-9 unit.
The second canine unit will be partnering with Sgt. Nick Barnhard.
The second K-9 is expected to arrive in Manning sometime in 2020.
