Donate to our local news fund, help a nonprofit

We’re on a mission in 2022 to work on a year-long series about housing in Racine County and we need your help to fund it. For every $250 in donations that we receive, we’ll give a nonprofit one free month in advertising.

RACINE COUNTY – The Racine County Sheriff’s Office has been selected to receive a grant for the purchase of an additional dog for its K-9 Unit from the Emma Loves Dogs Foundation.

“Despite the great care of our handlers, several of our K-9’s are nearing the end of their service life due to their age. This grant will allow our office to begin replacing those K-9’s over the next several years while still maintaining our K-9 Unit staffing overall,” the Sheriff’s Office stated in a news release. “The Sheriff’s Office is extremely grateful for being selected by the Emma Loves Dog Foundation. This grant helps to ensure the Sheriff’s Office can continue its long-standing commitment to public safety through our K-9 unit.” 

The Racine County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit is independently funded through grants and generous donations from local businesses, the general public, and fundraising events.
