DuBois – A reminder of those who truly care and make a difference…Lifesaving efforts were recognized during a recent DuBois City Council work session.

The city’s K-9 police drug dog, Ace, suffered a medical emergency April 18 that Officer Zayne Rhed recognized as potentially life-threatening.

He sped to Metzger Animal Hospital in State College, where Dr. Anne Granite, Roger Miller and several other staff members saved Ace’s life.

Police Chief Blaine Clark presented citations to Granite and Miller, who were in attendance.

Their actions were termed “immediate, courageous, brave and compassionate” and “will never be forgotten.”
