Shiloh Receives the First K9-KOT™ Shiloh was one of the Homewood Police Department's first multipurpose dogs. He was trained in tracking, narcotics detection, and apprehension of suspects. After about 7 years with the department, Shiloh retired due to showing age-related health problems. He is now enjoying retired life with Cpl. Ted Springfield, Shiloh’s third and final handler.  To thank Shiloh for his service and to help him feel as comfortable as possible, we donated a K9-KOT™!

The Benefits of Cots The most important benefit of sleeping on a cot is that it gets you off the ground. Being elevated keeps you off the cold, hard ground during the winter months and it allows air to circulate around the bed to keep you cool in the summer.
