Solon Police welcome Therapy K-9 Henry to bring comfort to victims
SOLON, Ohio (WOIO) - The Solon Police Department is “happy to announce another doggie addition” to their force!
The donation of Therapy K-9 Henry was accepted at the Solon City Council meeting on Aug. 23.
Henry is a year-and-a-half old labrador retriever who is a registered therapy dog and holds AKC Canine Good Citizen titles, police stated.
Police called Henry a “poorly kept secret” since he began training with Lt. Bill Vajdich in January, “and has been seen around town all summer.”
“The goal of the TK9 program is to support our own employee wellness at the station, encourage community engagement, and bring comfort to victims of sensitive cases,” stated police.
Lt. Vajdich will handle Henry in addition to his other duties, according to police.
