The crime-fighting dogs of the NYPD offered a helping paw to their canine counterparts serving overseas this holiday season — collecting doggie supplies and treats for Yuletide care packages.

The NYPD's ESU K9 Unit helped gather about 30 boxes of medical supplies, toys, shampoos, nail clippers and thank-you letters from school children over the past several days as part of "Operation War Dogs." The nearly $6,000 in supplies will be shipped out to Afghanistan over the weekend.

"President Trump: I'm Evan, president of Animal Hero Kids, and I'd like to make you an offer," he says in a video posted by a nonprofit, Million Dollar Vegan, the organization that would donate the money. "We will give $1 million to the veterans if you go vegan for January."
