Hundreds showed up at Mountain Mike’s Pizza in Galt Tuesday to help raise money for a new police K-9 for the Galt Police Department.
The dog will replace Yaro, the now retired police dog and former partner of Galt Officer Kevin Tonn, shot and killed last month on the job.
It costs about $10,000 to buy and train a police K-9. But, between the Galt Police Department, Foothills K-9 and Mountain Mike’s Pizza (donating 30 percent of all pizza sold until 8 p.m. Tuesday), the community is optimistic. To make donations, go to www.foothillsk9.org
