Police in Florida had their tails between their legs after a rug ordered for their HQ was found to read In Dog We Trust, instead of In God We Trust.
The forest green rug with the sheriff’s gold badge was in the entrance area of the building in Largo for a couple of months when the error was collared by a deputy on Wednesday.
The story received massive attention and Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office is now auctioning the rug for charity.
Proceeds from the auction will go to Canine Estates, a local animal rescue organisation.
Pinellas sheriff Bob Gualtieri said he wanted to put the rug under the hammer because of the huge publicity it generated.
The rug was initially valued at $500 dollars, but bidding had already far surpassed that. The auction closes on Wednesday.
