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.

I believe that every dog working in dangerous or hazardous conditions should have protection - after all, they are serving their country and save the lives of so many soldiers, police, etc. that they deserve to have vests to keep them safe. Vested Interest in K9s is an excellent company dedicated to equipping as many working dogs as possible. I'm very pleased to be able to help this company with every purchase made through Amazon.

What You'll Get

  • All donations will help provide bullet- and stab-protective vests to law enforcement dogs across the country
  • Donations are automatically applied

The Issue: Fatal Injuries to Police Dogs in the Line of Duty

Dogs employed in law-enforcement K9 units risk their lives on a daily basis, often without the proper protective equipment, due to departmental budget constraints. While on call, they are deployed ahead of their human counterparts, often confronting serious and possibly fatal danger to protect local communities.

The Campaign: Supplying Dogs with Bullet- and Stab-Protective Vests

All donations to this Grassroots campaign will be used by Vested Interest in K9s to supply bullet- and stab-protective vests for police dogs. For every $950 raised, Vested Interest can purchase one vest. The organization aims to provide at least 200 vests to active-duty dogs across the country, presenting the vests at ceremonies to demonstrate their valor and service. During the month of November, all K9 vests donated by this Grassroots campaign will be embroidered, “In Memory of K9 Vader, Virginia State Police”. Vader a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois graduated from Virginia State Police Narcotics Detection training in December of 2017, was shot and killed during a police chase on August 1, 2018. Vested Interest in K9s wishes to honor his sacrifice.
