SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

The Santa Barbara Police department will be getting another K-9 Unit thanks to a large donation for a new police dog.

This week, the city accepted a $45,000 contribution from the Santa Barbara Police Foundation .
There are also requests for equipment and supplies that will be funded by this group later this year.

For now these funds, are specifically to add a new police dog, and build up a fund for future police dog needs.
