The Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, Police Department received a boost for its K9 unit, made possible through a $10,000 donation from Nestlé Purina in Jefferson. The program, in its first year, has relied exclusively on donations and fundraising. "Without strong support and community partnerships such as the one we share with Nestlé Purina, our K9 team would not be a reality," said Chief Adrian Bump.
