The department said Zeke has inspired other police agencies to add therapy dogs, and Zeke will not be Wayne's last therapy dog.

Those who wish to honor Zeke's memory are asked to make donations to FirstStep, a nonprofit that has a program that provides survivors of domestic and sexual violence a place to stay with their pets.
