K-9 Crime Stoppers was awarded a $1200 grant towards the raising of Ben and Joe. The grant was made possible through the sale of Build-A-Bear’s full-sized Bearemy Kennel Pals (R). One dollar from the sale of each plush animal is donated through the Build-A-Bear Workshop Bear Hugs Foundation to domestic pet programs. We are thankful for their generosity and as K-9 CRIME STOPPER Ben and Joe continue to grow and progress, we thank Build-A-Bear for their donation.
