FBI Hostage Rescue Team K9 Ape was shot in the Line of Duty on March 14, 2013 while protecting his Team & the Herkimer, NY community.
I would like to create a life-sized bronze sculpture that rests on a large granite base in Apes honor. The base will be inscribed with the names of the Agencies assisting with our tragedy when Ape was shot. Apes statue will accompany a memorial for the other human victims from the horrible tragedy.

I have already started the clay molding and need to raise funds to bronze the statue to finish it. Once finished it will be transported to Herkimer, New York and presented to the Herkimer Police Department. This project is to remember Ape for his dedication and service. The project will be dedicated by the Herkimer Police Special Response Team, Team Leader Jody Wheet who was involved in this incident with his Team. He is coordinating the Community Memorial where Ape will be placed.
