Stryker K-9 Care Fund: Getting to Know Holly

News, Stryker, The Humanitarian

February 22, 2022

Holly is a Labrador retriever trained in drug and firearm detection who served with the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) for nine years. Holly retired from the CBSA in 2016.

During her career Holly was a three-time champion in drug detection at the Canadian Police Canine Association’s annual trials.

In retirement Holly enjoys relaxing with a snack (we hear, if given the opportunity, she’ll eat anything and everything), and playing with her favourite little red Kong toy.

On behalf of everyone at the SaskSPCA, we thank Holly and her handler for nine amazing years of service to the Canada Border Services Agency and the province of Saskatchewan.

The program is named after Police Service Dog (PSD) Stryker who served with the Saskatoon Police Service’s K-9 Unit.
