K9 candles
Proceeds from each K-9 candle purchase will be donated to the Georgia Police K9 Foundation.
When Dep. 1st Class Steven Challinger reached out to Jessica Leete, the owner of Dawson County-based Chattahoochee Candles, about a K-9-inspired candle, he thought it would “take several months” to implement.But, within 24 hours, Leete sent him photos of a possible product and the two entered a partnership that would encourage other K-9 handlers in Georgia to get involved in the project.
