First-aid kits donated for K-9 officers

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — K-9 officers in Buffalo are a little safer on the job.

An animal rescue group donated first-aid kits to the department. They have everything from bandages to syringes.

News 4 spoke with Officer James Duffy and met his K-9 officer Hydro.

Officer Duffy says Hydro does explosive searches for big events in Buffalo.

He says K-9 officers can be the first in harm’s way during a dangerous situation.

Buffalo has five K-9 officers. The department only had two safety kits before the donation.

“Buddy’s Second Chance Rescue” raised money to buy the department three more. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
