Bryan Police Wash Dogs For Good Cause

By  | 

A few local dogs now have a nice and clean shiny coat thanks to Bryan's finest.

For the second year in a row the Bryan Police Officers Association had its annual Dog Wash. Dog owners got to have police officers give their Spots, Rovers and Fidos a bath for a small donation.

Owners could have also had their dogs vaccinated or fitted with a micro-chip by area veterinarians.

The vaccines and locator micro-chips were donated for the event by the Brazos Valley Veterinarian Medical Association and the Brazos Animal Shelter. Organizers say the Dog Wash is a one top shop for pet dogs.

The purpose of the event, however, is two fold.

Sergeant Shane Bush is the President of the Bryan Police Officers Association, and he says Saturday's donations would honor a fallen comrade.

"Mark Hiatt was a Bryan Police Officer killed in the line of duty in December of 2000," Bush said. "We've established a scholarship fund in his name to give to kids in the Brazos Valley."

The association's goal is to raise $25,000 so it can begin awarding scholarships.
