A non-profit 501©3 organization to memorialize and honor all police K-9’s that have served Northern Illinois or that died while serving the citizens of Northern Illinois.
In June 2004, Sinbad, loyal and faithful Police K-9 partner of Deputy Anthony Fanella, lost his life due to heat stroke. At that time there was no memorial location to honor Sinbad’s service to the citizens of Lake County.
Deputy Fanella has made it his personal mission that Sinbad’s memory not be forgotten. It has taken many years, but on 1/11/11 Northern IL Police K-9 Memorial was incorporated. It is our goal to assure that all Police K-9’s that have served Northern Illinois will have a place to be honored and memorialized.
With the help of Highland Memorial Park in Libertyville, we have a location. We would also like to enlist the help of the citizens and businesses of Northern Illinois in raising funds to create the monument. These K-9’s are out serving every day – so what better way for you to give back than by honoring their memory?
Please find it in your heart to make a donation in support of this cause. 100% of the money raised will go to the memorial. The Northern IL Police K-9 Memorial is not affiliated with any law enforcement agencies.
Checks can be made payable to Northern IL Police K-9 Memorial and mailed to P.O. Box 94, Wadsworth, IL 60083. Donations can also be made in person at any Fifth Third Bank location, online on our facebook page through paypal or directly through paypal using our email address. Thank you in advance for helping to make a dream become a reality.
