The 2016 Vancouver Police Dogs Calendar is now on sale and features members of the VPD Canine Unit in their working environment. The calendar is funded and produced by the Candy Anfield Memorial Foundation, which was created by retired VPD Sergeant Mike Anfield in honour of his wife Candy, a VPD officer who lost her valiant battle with breast cancer in 2004.
The cost of each calendar is $10.00, and all of the money raised goes to the BC Cancer Foundation and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation. Last year, the calendar raised $30,000, bringing the total raised to $130,000.
Members of the Canine Unit will be holding a sidewalk sale in the next few weeks. The public will be able to meet the police dogs and handlers in person while supporting this very worthy cause, and we will be announcing the sale on the VPD.ca, Twitter, @VancouverPD and @VPDCanine, and Facebook.
