The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department is asking for donations to help one of its four-legged officers. A police horse needs a live-saving surgery and you may be able to help “Francis” Jake get the treatment he needs. The horse is an eleven-year veteran of the Mounted Patrol Unit and was diagnosed with skin cancer on a sensitive part of his body. Officials say after multiple attempts to rid him of the disease, the cancer is now at the stage where a doctor must perform invasive surgery to remove the body part from the horse to save his life.
According to the Mounted Patrol’s web, “Jake always does what is asked of him and has proven to be a reliable police horse.”
