WEST MONROE- West Monroe police are warning Ouachita Parish residents to disregard calls asking them to donate to an organization claiming to raise money to pay for police dogs.

People identifying their organization as "Puppy Patrol" have been calling local residents, asking them to donate to an address in Baton Rouge.

The News-Star in Monroe reports that the state Attorney General's Office is conducting an investigation into "Puppy Patrol." Police said they are unable to identify any legitimate law-enforcement agency participating with or receiving funds from this group.

West Monroe Police said anyone who receives a call from "Puppy Patrol" or any group proposing to raise money for police agencies should call the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-800-351-4889.
