PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, VA. /11-19-2020/- National nonprofit organization National Center for Police Defense, Inc. donated vital funds to the Prince William County Police K-9 Unit to provide Naloxone for each of the 11 dogs in the unit.
K-9s, who sniff out narcotics, can get sick or even die from their exposure to Fentanyl, a powerful opioid that is up to 50 times more potent than heroin. Exposure to the drug can result in significant health issues or even death. Naloxone is a medication that can be used to reverse the effects of opioid overdoses. This opioid antidote can also be used on dogs through an injection.
