On April 8, 2017, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Chelan County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) and Jones of Washington will team up again with Pybus Public Market to present K9s and Wines 2. The family fun event will feature K9 demonstrations, raffle, silent auction and prizes for the kids at Jones of Washington Tasting Room and parking lot located at 3 North Worthen Street in Wenatchee, Washington.

The event will offer an opportunity for the public to meet and interact with the Chelan County K9 handlers along with their furry partners, Reno, Axel, Aspen, Ruben and Spur. All proceeds and money raised will go to help purchase new equipment and training for the dogs and handlers.

Ruben can sniff out; Cocaine, Crack, Methamphetamine, China White Heroin and black Tar Heroin.
