When She Heard a Police Officer’s K-9 Was in Danger, Carrie Underwood Saved the Day

Police officers often see their K-9 partners as more than just partners — they become family. So when Officer Kevin Branscum’s dog, Gino, became sick, he was willing to spend however much it took to get him healthy again… except Carrie Underwood stepped in to save the day.

Kevin Branscum and his German Shepard, Gino, have been a team for over 4 years. Branscum is a K-9 narcotics investigation officer for the McIntosh County Sherrif’s Departments. Gino is his partner, and the way they work together is one of the sweetest things we have ever heard about.

Unfortunately, the story comes to a rough stop when this cute German Shepard contracted heart worms from a mosquito. The terrible part was not only Gino’s symptoms but also the crazy bill that was being racked up because of the vet’s costs.

Underwood then managed to hear about this whole situation, and then committed to auctioning 2 guitars off to collectors, effectively raising enough money to pay off the amount of medical bills that had overcome Kevin and his family.

“We’ve been going to vets for months, and we’ll be done with treatment in May. Treatment includes pils and injections. We stared a pill which he has tot make for 30 days and he has 120 pills to take. March 9th he starts injections. It has already cost me $4,000”

Branscum has a connection to Underwood — he works for the McIntosh County Sheriff’s Department, which is near her hometown of Checotah, Oklahoma. It’s refreshing to see a celebrity that is not only generous, but also does not forget her humble roots and where she came from.
