K9 Drake Memorial: Asking for community support to build memorial

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - A local veterinarian is trying to build a monument to FHP K-9 Trooper "Drake", and all of our K-9 heroes.

Last November Drake was shot several times by intruders breaking into Trooper Bobby Boody's home. Five days later Drake was euthanized.

"We are collecting donations on our kickstarter.com "Remembering Drake" site. Even though we have raised over $4,000 to date, all of that money gets returned to the pledges if the project does not fully reach the $15,000 goal by April 5, 2013," said Dr. Simmons.

Dr. Ken Simmons hopes to create a life-sized bronze sculpture in Drake's honor. Organizers are trying to collect the 15,000 dollars they need by April 5th.
