This is pretty great news. Thanks to a donation, the K9 team of Deputies Galbraith and Apollo will now both be wearing protective body armor!

Apollo will be fitted for bullet and stab protective armor which will be ready for use in a few weeks. The armor will help this K9 Deputy stay safe in the face of danger.

The vests run between $1700 and $2400. The armor donation was made by Vested Interest in K9s.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c (3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 2,900 protective vests, in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at the cost of over 2.5 million dollars.
