Likely, you've never encountered these two police dogs, but your vote would be greatly appreciated.

Oxx and Roo are German Shepherds who make up the Delta County Sheriff's K9 team and they have been nominated to participate in the 2019 Aftermath K9 Grant. Based on a popular vote, there will be 7 grant winners. That money will be used for training and equipment for the winning law enforcement agencies.

You can vote one time a day through November 3, and since this is a nationwide vote, you can ask your friends and family across the country to do western Colorado a small favor and vote for Oxx and Roo.

The first place winning agency receives a $5,000 grant, second place receives $4,000, third place gets $3,000, fourth place gets $2000, and $1500 goes to the fifth-place winner. Two honorable mention winners will each receive a $500 grant.

To vote, go to the Aftermath website where you'll see all of the nominees from various departments in the western United States. Find Delta County Sheriff's Office and cast your vote. Your vote can help get one of our local law enforcement agencies much needed training and equipment. I voted and I hope you will, too.
