We are donating our next canine (K-9 Lucky) in honor of fallen hero, Darren “Lucky” Weathers. Darren was a father, military veteran, and decorated, Detroit Police Officer who tragically died during a training exercise. Because of his passion for, and commitment to, the Detroit community, we decided that the best way to honor his legacy was to make sure that his name not only lived on, but, also, continued to protect and serve the Detroit community as well as provide benefits for other heroes.
