Annual Kevlars for K9s Campaign

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.

Donation page:


Since each vest needs to be tailored designed and made to fit every dog’s unique body, the cost can run up to about $1,400, more than human vests.


But, we believe every K9 deserves lifesaving protection, just like their human handlers.


With your support, we can protect more K9s and ensure they and their handlers continue to do critical, life-saving work to find bombs, drugs, and missing people.

Can I count on you to support us in our campaign?  

Your tax-deductible donation will save dogs lives. Thank you for helping us distribute these vests and ensure that K9s and their human handlers continue to safely work together.
