The Peace River K9 Search and Rescue has received a $3,399.30 grant from the Lillian J. Adams Fund for Animal Welfare.


This year, Charlotte Community Foundation is thrilled to award this check to Peace River K9 Search and Rescue.  The funds will be used to attach GPS tracking devices to the dog’s collars.  Mike Hadsell, president, says. “These devices will help speed up the recovery of a lost child by allowing them to know in a real-time where our dogs are, what areas they have covered and any areas that need to be rechecked.”

Lillian Adams passed away in 2011 but her legacy lives on in yearly disbursements from the Lillian J. Adams Fund for Animal Welfare held at the Charlotte Community Foundation.  Lillian’s love of animals led her to set up a fund upon her passing to benefit animal welfare in perpetuity.
