The Mexico Cafe in San Bernardino will once again serve up an opportunity to help the Redlands Police Department K-9 Unit by hosting the second annual, Dollars for Dogs fundraiser.

From 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., furry friend supporters can dine in at the eatery, with all tips from the day supporting the RPD K-9 Unit.

The Mexico Café is at 892 E. Highland Ave in San Bernardino. The unit recently added on a new member, Sonny, a 2-year-old springer spaniel. He replaces places Chewy, a German shepherd who joined RPD as a K-9 officer in 2013. Chewy retired in 2016 due to medical reasons. Sonny and his partner Ofc. Jaimeson Liu, along with Duke, the department’s 3-year old German Shepherd and his partner Ofc. Joseph Valdivia, will be at the event.

Highlights will include K-9 demonstrations and the RPD ballistic capable rescue/tactical vehicle. K-9 Unit T-shirts will also be available for purchase.
