Lions Club donates to K9 team

The Rome City-Brimfield Lions Club recently provided the Indiana Search and Response K-9 Team with a $1,600 donation to purchase K-9 emergency medical kits for 16 search dogs and handlers. The vehicle kits are needed when canines are injured during searches for missing people. The search team consists of 16 handlers and 18 dogs. The 501c3 organization completed 26 searches for missing people in 2021; that is their annual average over the past few years. The team trains twice a week as a group to have handlers and dogs ready to assist law enforcement and fire departments with searches for missing people. The Rome City-Brimfield Lions thank Jan Harkner-Abbs and the entire team for their very difficult and dedicated service.
