HOME SOUGHT FOR SPECIAL DOGGY DUO

Joanie, Chachi and ACO Christina Sutherin

Joanie, Chachi and ACO Christina Sutherin

SAVANNAH, GA. (July 16, 2014): Animal Control Officers from Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police are looking for homes — hopefully one — for two special dogs with an unusual fascination with each other.

Chachi and Jonie have captured the hearts of the officers since last Thursday when they were found roaming the neighborhoods around Delta Circle.

Chachi, a scraggly long hair Chihuahua mix, was suffering from a horrific eye infection. And Jonie, a white lab-pit bull mix many times larger than Chachi, was walking around with Chachi in her mouth, carrying him from place to place, stopping occasionally to lick his swollen eye. Clearly, Chachi appreciated the attention.

Veterinary staff at the Metro Animal Shelter could not save Chachi’s ruptured eye, but they performed surgery to patch him up. He has been recuperating in the shelter clinic ever since.

On Tuesday, Jonie finally was allowed to visit her old friend and shelter staff were treated to an emotional reunion of the two canine friends, complete with licking, whining, caressing and finally cuddling.

“It’s not every day we get to see such devotion between two special dogs like this,” said Animal Control Officer Christina Sutherin. “They are both such sweet animals. But the relationship they share just sets them apart. It would be wonderful if we could find a home that could take both of them. But that is not always possible.”

The dogs will be cleared for adoption today. They are up to date on vaccines, are heartworm negative and Chachi has been been neutered.

SIP to launch Jonathan’s Closet

SAVANNAH, GA. (June 16, 2014): Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department’s Savannah Impact Program (SIP) will host a community bash to celebrate the launch of Jonathan’s Closet, a clothing collection organized to help young people in need of career-appropriate attire.

The drive was named in honor of the late Jonathan Brown, a very active Workforce Investment Act (WIA) program participant who passed away last year.

Jonathan’s Closet is SIP’s newest WIA youth initiative. All donations will support WIA youth in immediate need of appropriate clothing for job interviews and other employment placement opportunities. Requested clothing items include clean and gently used: collared shirts, blouses, pants and slacks, skirts, dresses, ties and belts. Items in juniors and adult sizes are requested.

A kickoff event is set for July 26, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at Daffin Park. Clothing collection boxes will be present at the event. Boxes will also be placed at the SIP office and the five SCMPD precincts from Jul. 28 until Aug. 8.

WIA is an employment training program for eligible Chatham County youth, ages 16-21. Its focus is academic achievement and workforce development through effective and comprehensive activities.
