Ocala Fire Rescue receives grant to support K9

The Ocala Fire Rescue says that they have been selected by the Petco Foundation to receive a State Farm Arson Dog Support grant in the amount of $2,000.

In August 2014, the Ocala Fire Rescue received an arson investigation dog, K9 Gracie, through the program. The Petco Foundation recently offered recipients of the program an opportunity to apply for a grant to help supplement the cost of care and certification for the accelerant detection canine. 

Captain Roseanne Moreland heard about this opportunity and applied for the grant. Ocala Fire Rescue has been awarded $2,000 to help defray the costs associated with the care and annual re-certification of K9 Gracie.
