Local K9’s Shelter Me Premiere on PBS Benefits Local Animal Shelters

“The Worcester County Reserve Deputy Sheriff’s Association was pleased to provide donations this past week to our local animal shelters including; Sterling Animal Shelter, Worcester Animal Rescue League , Cocker Spaniel Rescue of New England, Second Chance Animal Shelter & New England All Breed Rescue. The donations were made possible thanks to our very successful Red Carpet Premiere & Benefit of the PBS series, “Shelter Me – Partners for Life” featuring our own Worcester County Sheriff’s Office K9 Nikita and his remarkable journey from homeless pup to top narcotics detecting K9 at the Worcester County Sheriff’s Office.” said Evangelidis

“Shelter animals make wonderful pets and incredible law enforcement partners. The Worcester County Sheriff’s Office is proud to have two shelter dogs Nikita and Jaxx, provided by the Sterling Animal Shelter, working hard each day in our narcotics detection unit. In addition, our partnership with the Second Chance Animal Shelter pairs behavioral shelter dogs with our low-risk inmates helping to better prepare those canines for future adoption into loving homes. Both programs involving shelter animals have had a positive impact for all at our correctional facility and we are thrilled to be able to give back to the animal shelter community with the proceeds from our recent benefit.” said Worcester County Sheriff Lew Evangelidis.
