ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Pleasureland RV Center owner Dan Pearson has come to the assistance of law enforcement once again, this time footing the bill for a bloodhound that replaces one who used to work for the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office until it died unexpectedly late last year, the St. Cloud Times reported today.
“I heard in the news that they lost the other one, and there’s a touch of sentimental in this, but here’s the philosophy: We get to do what we do every day, and our customers and our community, because of law enforcement, firefighters and the military,” Pearson told the Times. “So when you get an opportunity to give them a tool, that’s reinvesting in the community.”
“Dan has stepped up before, so I wasn’t surprised because I know what motivates Dan Pearson,” Sheriff John Sanner said. “He really wants to help.”
When Pearson learned they lost a dog that has successfully located a missing girl a few years earlier, he called and offered to pay for the new one, Pearson told RV Daily Report.
“We have a long history of supporting our local and area law enforcement agencies along with fire departments,” said Pearson. “We also do the same with several military organizations. We feel very strong about giving back to the communities we serve and support the people who serve us that allow us to go about our daily lives.”
Making these donations also gives the Pleasureland a great deal of pride that their hard work allows the dealership to make these donations on their behalf to the communities they live in, he added.
