City approves first police therapy dog
March 10, 2021
Green River will be the first city in Wyoming to receive a police therapy dog following an approval by the Green River City Council last week.
The Council approved a $6,000 grant to purchase Buddy, a black Labrador retriever, who will serve as the department’s therapy dog.
Tom Jarvie, chief of police for Green River, said the department received several donations for the therapy dog, including a $1,250 from Jason Barrera, a nine-year-old child.
“The community has really latched onto this program and the department is grateful for the support,” Jarvie said in a press release.
