This all began in March when the Troy Police Department put out a challenge on Twitter saying it would get a police cat if it received 10,000 followers by April. It reached its goal weeks early! Not surprised.
Pawfficer Donut was sworn in in front of two judges while the Police Chief looked on. She even got a badge and everything.
She will be used to help raise awareness for pet adoptions and rescues. She will also interact with people in the community and on social media.
