BARBOURSVILLE — Little Caesars restaurants throughout the Tri-State raised money to help purchase a GPS tracker for every K-9 unit in 70 police departments in West Virginia.
Sabrina Donahue-Moore, VDM Management Group marketing director, said the 2021 Little Caesars Pizza Pizza Paws campaign successfully reached and exceeded the fundraising goal for this year. She said the goal was to provide one DOGTRA GPS tracking collar to over 70 police K-9 departments throughout West Virginia and surrounding states.
“With great community support, the $20,000 goal was surpassed and the campaign brought in $30,000,” she said. “That allowed an additional 30 tracking collars to be purchased for the departments, bringing the total to 100.”
“We are very appreciative to our customers and community partners for helping make this years Pizza Pizza Paws campaign a great success. It’s an honor for us to help support the police K-9 Divisions. From tracking, drug searches and criminal apprehension the K-9 officers are a great value that makes our communities a safer place to live and work,” said Vicki Dunn-Marshall, franchisee and owner of VDM Management Group.
