The Issue: Law-Enforcement Dogs Sent into Harm’s Way

Every day, service dogs working alongside their police, fire, and military partners are sent into extremely dangerous situations—often ahead of their human counterparts—in which they might be shot, stabbed, or otherwise injured. Currently, 86 vest requests from states across the country, including Georgia, await fulfillment, according to Project Paws Alive, Inc. When these requests are filled, brave canines can be better protected while putting their lives on the line to protect their partners and communities.

The Campaign: Providing Protective Vests for Police Dogs

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Project Paws Alive, Inc. to provide stab- and bulletproof protective vests for law-enforcement service dogs. For every $800 raised, Project Pets Alive, Inc. can purchase one canine vest.

Project Paws Alive, Inc.

When two loving pet owners heard about a series of police-dog deaths that could have been prevented if the dogs had been wearing protective vests, they knew they had to do something to protect these brave animals. So they founded Project Paws Alive, Inc., and now they and their dedicated volunteers spend their nights and weekends—on top of their own jobs—working to ensure that law-enforcement and military canines, as well as domestic pets affected by trauma, receive the same protection and life-saving measures as their human counterparts. The initiative receives requests from civil-service agencies around the country for equipment such as stab- and bulletproof vests for police dogs, canine field-trauma kits, cooling vests, and oxygen masks for domestic pets suffering from smoke inhalation. Often this equipment is too costly for agencies to purchase themselves, or it is prohibited by governmental restrictions but can help police departments, fire departments, and medical first responders save the lives of dogs that work hard to keep humans safe.
