Sheriff’s Office Rug Reading “In Dog We Trust” Earns Nearly Five Figures in Charity Auction

Last week, 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.

The office smartly decided to auction off those rugs and donate the money to charity called Canine Estates, Inc.

The bidding ended yesterday at a whopping $9,650.

Incredible and amazing.

The winning bidder, whose handle is masb1955, is still anonymous.
