SUNY Cobleskill Canine Club Donates to Albany County Sheriff K-9 Unit

SUNY Cobleskill’s Canine Club recently donated $700 raised at its annual dog wash fundraiser to the Albany County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, which includes nine specially trained law enforcement dogs and their handlers.

Club members met with the officers of the K-9 Unit on campus to deliver the donation, and received a plaque from the Albany County Sheriff’s Office. They also had an opportunity to experience how the officers and their dogs train in bomb detection.

The annual dog wash often raises funds for local animal shelters. The connection to the Albany County Sheriff’s Office this year was made possible in large part by SUNY Cobleskill Adjunct Professor Kyle McCraith, who also serves as a Master Sergeant in the K-9 Unit.

SUNY Cobleskill is one of only a few accredited colleges in the country that offer canine programs. The canine concentration under the Animal Science BT degree is designed for students interested in learning about training and managing dogs.
