Thanks to a gift, Manatee County sheriff's K-9's will be prepared in case they fall ill from exposure to opioids.

The Sheriff’s Office K9 unit is now equipped with Narcan kits, thanks to a donation from the Hynton family

Narcan is a medication used to treat opioid exposure. The Hyntons bought eight Narcan Kits ($134 per kit) through the Desoto Animal Clinic.

The clinic provided one kit to the Sheriff’s Office and provided training on how to administer the Narcan.
