Sentry Insurance Foundation Donates Funds for Stevens Point K9 After Tragedy

K9 Luna. Stevens Point Police Department

Stevens Point, WI (OnFocus) Sentry Insurance Foundation presented the Stevens Point Police Department with a $20,000 check Monday morning toward a new K9 officer.

The department was rocked last week by the sudden decline of K9 Luna, who passed of multiple organ failure on Sept. 4 after exposure to a poisonous mushroom. The Belgian Malinois began her career in April 2018 with K9 Fala.

While there’s usually a waiting list, Luna’s kennel has moved the department up in priority. Luna’s handler, Officer J.D. Ballew, will be partnered with the new K9.
