The Fort Worth City Council Tuesday, March 5, approved the accession of a bronze sculpture titled FWPD K9 to honor all canine officers who have served the Fort Worth Police and Fire Departments.

The sculpture, created by Fort Worth-based artist Mick Doellinger, was commissioned by the Allan Rodger family. It is on view in the K9 Cemetery, located at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex, 505 W. Felix St.

“The transitioning of this art piece to the city art collection ensures ongoing maintenance and care for the bronze to be maintained in excellent condition,” said Lieutenant Michael O’Neil of the Fort Worth Police Department.

O’Neil said a formal ceremony should be held in the near future.

District 9 Councilwoman Ann Zadeh said of the bronze sculpture and its donation, “It is an excellent example of the support many residents in our community have for our first responders that this sculpture has been commissioned and donated for display at the Bob Bolen. In addition, I am pleased that our public art program is able to provide the maintenance and support to keep this sculpture in good repair.”
