Boy nearing fundraising goal for new Wisconsin police K-9

7-year-old Ethan Engum has already raised $10,000 for a new police K9

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) – A 7-year-old boy is getting closer to reaching his fundraising goal to get the Green Bay Police Department a new K9.

According to Ethan Engum’s GoFundMe, he has now raised more than $10,000. The campaign is asking for $12,000.

Ethan decided to raise the money after hearing about the death of a beloved police dog named Cops. Cops died in August after battling serious medical conditions.

On Thursday, all five Brown County Culver’s locations donated 10 percent of their sales to Ethan‘s “Cause for Paws” campaign. They raised a total of $2,118.

The Green Bay Police Department has said it appreciates Ethan’s generosity.
