On Saturday, June 24 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., Spike’s K9 Fund, a nonprofit dedicated to supporting dogs who serve in law enforcement, is hosting a special event to repair the Newport News Police K9 Obstacle Course. Event organizers are looking for moreSpikesK9Fund_SC volunteers to assist the Newport News Police Department (NNPD) with the repairs.

Food is being provided to all volunteers, and Spike’s K-9 Fund is providing supplies to build and repair the obstacles.
