PAWTUCKET – The four new furry members of the Pawtucket Police Department made a visit last week to the Pet Food Experts headquarters down the street from the Pawtucket Police Department to say thank you to the PFX team. Pet Food Experts has offered to feed the four K9 officers and they have accepted.

The employees at the Pet Food Experts home office were excited to meet the K9 unit of the Pawtucket Police Department.

After taking some photos, Argo, a Czech Shepherd, and Magno, a Belgian Malinois, Pawtucket’s narcotics dogs returned to the station while Neko, the search and rescue bloodhound in training, and compassion/therapy dog Watson, a Goldendoodle, took a tour of the office.

“Part of the mission of Pet Food Experts is to give back and support the communities in which our various operations reside. When we learned the city of Pawtucket had added a K9 unit to their team, we immediately wanted to see what we could do to help,” said Pet Food Experts Chief of Staff Keri Lemieux. “As the local ‘experts’ in pet food, we were happy to offer a feeding program for the dogs at no cost to the department. We are very pleased the department took us up on our offer.”

The Pawtucket K9 officers are being fed Orijen dog food made by Champion Petfoods. Orijen is an award-winning food designed to keep the working dogs in prime condition.
