Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office Will Auction Off “In Dog We Trust” Rugs for Charity

Yesterday, I posted about the new rugs in the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office (in Florida), which cost $500 and contained a rather notable misprint:

If you look closely, you’ll see a major typo within one of the crests — “In Dog We Trust.”

A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office told Action News the error was made by the rug manufacturer, American Floor Mats. The company is currently working on giving the sheriff’s office a replacement, according to a spokesperson.

Replacement rugs aside, the office has noted all the interest in this story over the past couple of days and they’re finally doing what everyone wanted them to do:

The Florida office said there has been “extensive interest” in what it planned to do, so they are letting folks bid on it and will donate 100% of the proceeds to a local animal rescue called Canine Estates Inc.

Awesome, awesome move.

The bidding ends on Wednesday and it’s already up to $2,675 as I write this.
