Each month, neighborhood association leadership gather to learn more about what's going on in our community, learn about different topics and hear from guest speakers. Tonight, neighborhood leaders learned more about what's coming soon to Clark County, WA.
What you see before you is a part of the materials neighborhood association leaders will distribute among their neighborhoods. So what exactly is this?
I folded up and walked away with this picture and a full heart. Clark County (in my opinion) has always been an animal-friendly community and what you see before you proves just that. It's a K-9 Memorial with a statue dedicated to each law enforcement dog killed in the line of duty, five to date.
Dogpaw has fully committed to this project and expects to help raise the estimated over $2 million funding to make it a reality. They will oversee the maintenance and upkeep after it's dedication, likely will partnership(s). There will be no cost to the taxpayers for this project.
No other Memorial like it exists in Clark County and the project has grown to include recognition for our local law enforcement K-9s plus all K-9s killed in the line of duty throughout the entire State of Washington. A similar Memorial exists back East, however, we're told there is nothing in between. This will be a great addition to the Heritage Farm here in Vancouver, WA.
