Cpl. Art Madden and his dog Woodie will headline the April 24 meeting of The Republican Club of Central Pasco, at Copperstone Executive Suites, 3632 Land O’ Lakes Blvd. Madden will speak to the club about the Pasco Sheriff’s Office (PSO) K-9 charity and the club will present a $250 donation to the corporal.
The PSO K-9 Unit is one of the largest and most diversely skilled K-9 units in Florida. It is comprised of multiple handler and K-9 teams, all serving a specific purpose.
These teams use their skills in various ways including tracking missing people; finding drugs, explosives or accelerants; locating human remains; and, providing comfort for those in crisis.
The K-9s are vital to the PSO — they can perform tasks that humans cannot or that would take significant manpower and time to achieve the same result. There is a social at 6 p.m., followed by the business meeting at 6:30 p.m. For information, call 813-996-3011.
