OPP Canine Calendars Available In Lindsay With Proceeds Going To Support Local Charities

KAWARTHA LAKES-The annual OPP Canine Unit Calendar is out with proceeds going to support local charities.

The OPP Canine Unit has been supporting frontline and specialized policing functions for more than 50 years. Handlers and their canines provide assistance with search and rescue, tracking wanted persons, detecting narcotics, and searching for firearms, explosives and physical evidence.

The calendar features 24 photos, with canines from around the province showcasing their speciality, location and role. July’s canine, six-year-old Kilo from London, is seen being lifted onto his handler’s shoulder using the carry method – a move that allows canines to be comfortably carried over dangerous grounds. In March you will meet five-year-old Mane from Orillia, an explosives detection canine who uses his keen sense of smell to identify an explosive device under a vehicle during a training exercise. Finally, prepare to get on the water with August’s model, seven-year-old Dance from Sault Ste. Marie.

All proceeds from the 2023 OPP Canine Unit calendar go to the OPP Youth Foundation and the Friends of The OPP Museum. Last year’s calendar sales raised more than $42,900.

Each calendar costs $15 and can be purchased at the CKL OPP Detachment in Lindsay or at oppshop.on.ca.

The OPP Youth Foundation provides funds to disadvantaged youth throughout the province of Ontario. The Friends of The OPP Museum is a volunteer-based charitable organization that supports, promotes and assists in the preservation of the history of the OPP.
