An adorable new calendar has gone on sale for 2014.

The charity calendar, celebrating the work of retired Lancashire Police Dogs, is now on sale and will raise vital funds for the police charity.

Produced by a team from the Retired Lancashire Police Dogs Benevolent Fund, with the help of dog handlers, the calendar features fun photographs of every current working police dog in Lancashire, who will in time need the help of the charity to have a happy, relaxing retirement.

PC Leanne Mankowski says: “Most of the Lancashire police dogs retire to their handlers, who then have to take over the financial responsibility.

“In some cases dogs are retired at a young age due to illness or injuries sustained and then veterinary and drugs bills can be very heavy and cause heart-searching decisions for a handler who may well have more than one police dog.

“They are an integral part of operational Policing within Lancashire and provide an invaluable service to our County.

All the dogs pictured in the calendar are serving police dogs within Lancashire Constabulary and range form working as general purpose police dogs to searching for explosives, drugs weapons and cash.

The calendar will be available to order through or from Sheila Maw on 01254 823136 and is priced at £7.
