Pictures with Santa benefit Chickasaw County K9 unit

FREDERICKSBURG (KWWL)-- Holiday cheer in Fredericksburg includes a fundraiser for the Chickasaw County Sheriff's Office.

Kids and pets had the chance to take their picture with Santa to raise money for Deputy Ringo Saturday.

Ringo is part of the Chickasaw County Sheriff's Office's K9 unit. The money raised here will be used to keep the K9 unit going in Chickasaw County.

Right now, Ringo's handler is using his personal finances for the K9 unit.

"Ringo will be 11 this year. So we are kinda nearing the end of his working cycle and that's kind of is what we are trying to do now is build up money to replace him as soon as it comes time for him to retire," said K9 deputy Reed Palo.

Another fundraiser will take place Saturday, November 28 at the Lawler Fire Station from 2 to 5 p.m. Another one is Sunday, November 29 in New Hampton from 1 to 4 p.m.
