Board of Directors for SVPCA

Jody Wilk, Executive Director

In January, 2010 several students from Standish-Sterling Central High School were expelled for selling and purchasing prescription drugs. It was that incident that led Jody and her family to propose a fundraising effort to fund a K9 Unit for the Arenac County Sheriff’s Department. Arenac County had gone nearly 10 years without a K9 unit and the drugs were starting to take over the community. On August 1, 2011, their efforts were successful when K9 Sonic joined the department's force. Jody continues to organize annual fundraisers to keep the Arenac K9 Unit funded.

The work she did in Arenac County caught the attention of Bridgeport officials and she soon began working with them on fundraisers to bring a K9 unit to their department. It was a short while later that she teamed up with the Saginaw K9 handlers to help offset their annual expenses and eventually help save their program.

Jody's passion for assisting K9 Units came after her 34 year old brother passed away unexpectedly, less than three months after starting the fundraising in Arenac County. She uses the pain of losing him as a talisman to help provide funding for law enforcement agencies for their K9 units.


Officer Douglas Stacer, Director

In 1998 Officer Stacer joined the City of Saginaw Police Department. Officer Stacer had served in the Patrol Division, the Motor Unit, the Community Policing Unit, and as a Narcotics Detective in the Investigation Unit assigned to the Michigan State Police as a member of the BAYANET team. In 2011 Officer Stacer was selected as a K9 Handler and was sent to receive his initial handler training at Vohne Liche Kennels in Indiana where he was partnered with Canjo.

Canjo and Officer Stacer are currently assigned to the patrol division and are trained in patrol work, tracking and narcotics. Officer Stacer is dedicated to the work he does and has been working to raise funds to help offset the expenses the K9 units incur throughout the year.
