In the dog days of summer, I am writing to you about our new campaign about–you guessed it– protecting K9s. Tens of thousands of these loyal, trusted dogs serve alongside their human handlers in police departments across the country. But, sadly, due to budget cuts, many departments cannot afford life-saving Kevlar vests for these dogs. Last year, approximately two dozen dogs died in the line of duty.
But, we know this doesn’t have to be the reality. We are launching an ambitious campaign to raise $80,000 to distribute ballistic-proof vests for police dogs across America.
