One of Danbury's Police K9s has been discharged from service due a tumor on his brain.  K9 Koda joined the force in 2011. 

 

Similar to efforts in Newtown to raise money to cover medical bills for their K9, a friend started a Go Fund Me page on behalf of Koda.  45 people surpassed the $9,000 goal in just one day for the Danbury K9.  That included a $4,000 donation on behalf of Wilton-based Blue Buffalo pet products. 

 

 

Officer Kupchok's parents also made a large donation to the medical bills saying that Koda has watched over and protected their son, noting that they have an unbreakable bond.

 

Koda was purchased for Danbury Police with a $10,000 donation.  The Hungarian-born German shepherd went on patrol with his handler, Officer Travis Kupchok, and was also trained to sniff out narcotics.
