OKANOGAN The Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office’s K-9 corps has received three ballistic vests to protect the dogs.
A non-profit organization, Vested Interest in K9s Inc., provided the vests, Sheriff Frank Rogers said.
In a nationwide “Groupon” event, the organization raised more than $335,000 for the dog safety vests.
The office’s latest K-9 graduate, Basco, received a vest. Ayk and Gunner received vests through an online event earlier this year. People could make tax-deductible donations.
Vested Interest in K9s Inc. will provide more than 350 law enforcement dogs nationwide with the protective body armor in memory of the Pittsburgh Police Department’s Rocco, who died in the line of duty in January.
All vests will be embroidered with “In Memory of K9 Rocco, Pittsburgh Police Department.”
Each vest costs $950 and has a five-year warranty.
