A rug at a Florida sheriff's office that was misprinted with "In Dog We Trust" is being auctioned for the benefit of an animal rescue.

Two new rugs in the lobby of the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office administration building in Florida had been there for several weeks before a deputy noticed a problem with one of them on Wednesday. The crest should read, “In God We Trust.” But it had a pretty big typo. Instead, it read, “In Dog We Trust.” The manufacturer, American Floor Mats, is working on a replacement for the $500 rug — and the sheriff’s office has found a way to make the best out of the situation. They’re auctioning the rug off online and plan to give 100 percent of the winning bid to Canine Estates, which is a local animal rescue. Bidding closes on Wednesday, and as of Friday morning, the highest bid was $1,125. — Read it at Tampa’s ABC Action News
