Non-Profits We Love: Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog


Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog is an independent, all-volunteer, non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to provide support for Massachusetts Police Dogs. Their primary goal is to insure every Massachusetts K-9 has a bulletproof vest. 

While law enforcement agencies provide bullet-resistant vests for their human officers, they are unable to fund vests for K-9 officers. As K-9s are trained to give up their lives to protect their partners and all of us, they believe it is every bit as important to protect them. 

A bulletproof K9 vest ranges from $1006 to *$2400 each (handler/dept choice). All K9 vests will also protect against blunt force trauma if kicked, punched, or struck with an object, like a bat. 

The photo of the adorable puppy wearing the Boston Police Department bulletproof vest above that melted the internet is part of the Vest-A-Dog 2015 Calendar! A $10 donation per calendar, plus S&H, includes a FREE Window Decal!
