This weekend, Edina police are heading to Eagan to help raise money for the event with a trap shoot fundraiser featuring a silent auction and canine demonstration.
“Our K-9s are an integral part of our department. Without the assistance of Diesel and Blade, a number of criminals wouldn’t have been caught and drugs would have gone undetected,” Edina Police Chief Jeff Long said in a statement. “Our K-9s also work as partners with many other municipalities to help snuff out illegal drugs in our community.”
The cost is $50 per person, which includes the trap shooting, shells (12- and 20-gauge are available), food and beverage. Individual or squads of five are welcome. No prior trap shooting experience is required. For participants who care to eat, but not shoot, the cost is $10 per person. Those 12 years of age and younger cost $5.
All of the profits from the event will benefit the USPCA and Retired Paws, a non-profit created to provide financial support for retired aging K-9s.
For more information or to purchase tickets to the fundraiser, contact the Edina Police Department at 952-826-1610.
