Police dogs are cool. Fact. But it’s easy to take for granted those four-legged officers that are so essential to helping our men and women in uniform do their jobs and keep us all safe. In fact, most law enforcement agencies don’t even have the budget to provide the thousand-dollar protective vests to their K-9 officers. That’s why PetArmor has declared the week of April 28 National Thank a Police Dog Week and is working with the non-profit Vested Interest in K9s to help donate the protective gear they need.
It’s a great opportunity to teach kids about the wonderful work of police dogs. Just visit PetArmor this week, and send a thank you note to the wonderful K-9 officers whom PetArmor is helping to vest in various cities this year, including Flash up at top, and Dash, shown here, both from the Miami PD.
Last year, 25 police dogs around the country benefited; and this year, 25 more police dogs will be outfitted in custom made, bullet-and-stab-protective vests. For years, PetArmor has been known by pet owners for their trusted flea and tick protection. Now, there’s one more way they’re helping to protect the animals you love.
Visit PetArmor now through May 4 to send thanks to a specific K-9 officer that PetArmor has helped vest, or learn more about their non-profit partner, Vested Interest in K9s. And if you see a Police Dog on the street, say thanks. They deserve it.
