Boris and Rex are the two K-9 officers with PCPD. They do weekly training every week with their owners. 

They are nominated for a five thousand dollar grant through a program called Aftermath.

Aftermath is a trauma cleaning service which helps people fix up their homes if there is a crime scene.

Voting is open through October 26. You can vote once a day per platform on the Aftermath website, on Instagram @AftermathK9Grant or on Facebook @AftermathCares.
