A K9 trainer from the Clinton Police Department and K9 handlers from Knox and Loudon counties are helping authorities in Miami relocate 35 K9s that could be in the path of Hurricane Irma, the Clinton Police Department said this week.
CPD Detective Sergeant Bob Suarez, a K9 trainer, left for Florida on Wednesday night, the Police Department said.
A van, a bus, and a truck are being used to take the dogs north. The K9s will be safely sheltered in Tennessee, the Volunteer State, until the storm passes by, the Clinton Police Department said.
More information will be added as it becomes available.
