$9,650 Typo: 'In Dog We Trust' Rug Sold for Charity
And for a good cause.
Remember that Florida sheriff's rug printed with "In Dog We Trust"? After receiving a number of offers on social media, Bob Gualtieri of the Pinellas County Sheriff's office decided to auction it off, with all proceeds going to Canine Estates Inc., a local animal rescue.
The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office will not sweep anything under the rug. Due to extensive interest regarding our plans for the doggone rug, you can bid on it here, and we will donate 100 percent of your bid to Canine Estates Inc., a local animal rescue.
The sheriff's office told Tampa's WFLA-TV the listing got 30,980 hits before the sale was finalized. The rug sold to an anonymous bidder.
