Nicole A. Burnham: 12/30/1996 - 01/26/2018
On April 19th, 2018, Minnesota K9 Search Specialists was honored to receive a $2,000 donation from the family of Nicole Burnham, who died from suicide earlier this year. Nicole was kind, compassionate, adventurous and creative. She was also a proud soldier in the United States Army and had just completed a tour of duty in South Korea.
Part of the donation went into purchasing rappelling harnesses for our canine partners. We utilize these harnesses to lift and lower ourselves and our dogs into rescue actions. Patches were custom made and placed on each of our harnesses so we can carry Nicole's memory with us- ensuring she'll be there to help bring us and our canine partners to safety.
MNK9SS thanks the Burnham family for their donation and our hearts go out to them as they grieve Nicole.
If you would like to find out more about how you can help carry on Nicole's legacy, we encourage you to check out the Burnham family's Facebook page in rememberance of Nicole: Pooters Peeps
