At the event Tuesday, law enforcement officially welcomed these two new K-9s to the community and recognized the Schillhahn-Huskey Foundation for their generosity.

Representatives from AEGIS, Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office, Red Bank Police Department, Rhea County Sheriff’s Office, the Chattanooga Police Department and Lauren Wolfford, President of the Shillhahn-Huskey Foundation, participated in Tuesday’s announcement.
