WEST JORDAN — West Jordan police are co-hosting a K-9 Fundraiser for Kuffs Saturday to raise funds to replace Kuffs, who is being retired after five years of service with the department. Police service dogs can cost up to $10,000.
The event, which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., is sponsored by Mike Searle and Stan Ware, owners of Pendleton’s Towing and Dave’s Body Shop.
After the dog broke a third canine tooth, a veterinarian said Kuffs needs to be retired from the police force.
In addition to a classic car show, the fundraiser will have demonstrations by the department's K-9 unit, the Utah Highway Patrol, the Davis County Sheriff’s Office and others.
Superheroes from H.E.R.O.I.C. will be on hand, as well as a bounce house, laser tag, and other activities for kids. Food from Braza Grill, a raffle of items and a “Dunk-a-Cop” booth manned by West Jordan Police Chief Doug Diamond are some of the activities planned.
Kuffs’ career has included hundreds of drug seizures, multiple apprehensions of fleeing suspects, and even helping to find lost children and endangered people. One of Kuffs' most prominent successes was her involvement in the 2011 seizure of approximately $230,000 of drug money seized from a storage unit.
