In a Nutshell

Donations provide a K9-unit dog with a gunshot- and stab-proof vest

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Lack of Protection for K9-Unit Dogs

K9-unit dogs risk their lives each day to protect their community and police partners. Oftentimes, the dogs are sent into a location first, ahead of their partners, where they put themselves in harm’s way to reduce risk to their police unit.

The Campaign: Providing a Protective Vest for a K9-Unit Dog

If this Grassroots campaign raises $1,010, then Vested Interest in K9s Inc. can provide a gunshot- and stab-proof vest for a K9 police-unit dog. Each additional $1,006 raised will fund the purchase of a vest for another dog.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.

Lifelong animal lover Sandy Marcal created Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. to raise awareness and funds for bullet-protective vests for K9 police-unit dogs. She has more than a decade of experience working with K9 teams and has raised funds to purchase more than 1350 protective vests for K9 dogs in 49 states. Vested Interest’s team of volunteers also spreads the word of its mission through networking, donation collections, and fundraising events. Each time a new vest is procured, Marcal organizes and presides over a vesting ceremony for the chosen K9 unit.

I am glad I was able to donate to this project. I try to do as much as I can to support any animal safety, rescue or beneficial program for animals. Thank you for the opportunity. I hope this project was able to supply many dogs with life saving vests. Wishing only the best for ALL my four legged buddies.
