K-9 Kai is one of the 8 finalists for the American Humane Association's Hero Dog Award!  Kai won her category - Arson Dog. Kai needs our help again to spread the word to vote for her. Voting for this final round began on 7/7 and goes through September 15. You can vote every day. The winner is selected from public voting and a panel of judges.

Kai, and her handler Justin, will be going to the awards ceremony in California. They will walk the red carpet along with the other nominees. The winner will be announced at their gala on September 27. The event will be televised, however, we don't know yet if we can get it in this area.
