Donor gives $20K for police dogs

August 28, 2012

A businessman has donated $20,000 to the city of Anderson to help replace two police dogs that died during violent confrontations in the past month. The contribution from David Myers of Indianapolis should cover most of the expenses for replacing the dogs, which typically cost between $10,000 and $12,000. One of the dogs was euthanized last week after being shot in the face by a suspected bank robber. The other mistook an officer as an aggressor during a late July standoff and had to be shot.
