It’s official! The Bethlehem Mounted Patrol Unit’s Adopt-A-Horse program has once again successfully sponsored Raven, Pharaoh, and George for 2015. The Officers, the horses, and the Friends of the Bethlehem Mounted Police would like to thank our Adopt-A-Horse sponsors for this year! Raven will again be sponsored by the Jefferson Democratic Club (2nd year), George will again be sponsored Maria’s Farm Country Kitchen (3rd year), and Pharaoh will again be sponsored by Just Born (4th year).
Interested in a future horse sponsorship or supporting the Mounted Patrol Unit through additional sponsorship opportunities? Contact the Unit at firstname.lastname@example.org or the Friends of the Bethlehem Mounted Patrol Unit at friendsoftheBMP@gmail.com . We are developing a list of folks who are interested in helping, including any future replacement horses that will allow for the opportunity to name the new horse.
