LINE-X Protective Coatings of Kentucky recently awarded the Louisville Metro Police Department’s (LMPD) K-9 Unit with a $10,000 contribution towards the refurbishment of its kennel facility which is in dire need of repair and upgrades. As many of their LMPD human partners will attest, the special breed of Belgian Malinois dogs are the hardest working officers they’ve ever seen and they expect nothing in return. That’s exactly why the members of the Louisville Metro Police K-9 Unit deserve a better place to call home and LINE-X Protective Coatings of Kentucky is working with the Louisville Kennel Club to provide the necessary funds and manpower to spray the facility with LINE-X, which will help protect the kennel against decades of peeling paint and rust.
“The members of the LMPD K-9 Unit make tremendous sacrifices everyday and adequate training and housing facilities for these animals are a necessity for keeping the animals healthy and the community safe,” said Justin Satterwhite, Co-Owner, LINE-X Protective Coatings of Kentucky. “We are happy to help through our funds and services to support this project and we also encourage other local businesses to help the effort and donate to the Louisville Kennel Club to help us finish the job.”
A one-time application of LINE-X is the first step towards a permanent repair plan for the facility but the estimated costs are substantial for all the necessary upgrades and the kennel needs additional help from the community. The Louisville Kennel Club is hoping to get community support to help keep the dogs safe and healthy. If you would like to help the Louisville Kennel Club raise the money for these officers any donation is welcome.
