As well, I couldn’t be more pleased at how receptive and willing Paulding Fire & Rescue was in working at every step of this fundraiser. There couldn’t be a better example of how our Fire department and local residents have joined together to bring an important service to our community.”

Fundraising to Vest Snellville Police K-9s is on!

HELP SAVE A LOCAL POLICE K-9 BY DONATING NOW!

PRESS RELEASE – For Immediate Release October 12, 2012 11:00am EST

Project Paws Alive, a local non-profit organization, has kicked-off its fundraising effort to provide ballistic vests for Police K-9s with the City of Snellville Police Department.

The K-9 ballistic protective vests are bulletproof and stab-proof. These vests are cut from the same Kevlar® bulletproof cloth as their human partners, covering all the vital organs.

Each body armor vest donated by Project Paws Alive is custom manufactured in order to fit the body shape and size of each K-9 police dog. The vests are designed so that the police dogs can wear the vests the entire time that they are working with their assigned handlers. They offer outstanding ballistic protection with ease of movement, breathe-ability and cooling comfort in a rigorously field-tested vest.

Many Law Enforcement K-9 Units do not have the budget to purchase these life-saving vests. Most agencies are prohibited from spending funds on equipment that is not for human officer use.

All vests donated by Project Paws Alive meet current National Institute of Justice (NIJ) 06 ballistic regulations. All vests are bullet-proof and stab-proof and are NIJ level IIA ballistic protection and level III spike protection. These vests help protect the K-9s from gun shots, stabbings, and other blunt force trauma such as being kicked, punched, or beaten with a weapon or other dangerous object while on duty. These protective vests are a vital piece of equipment to protect law enforcement K-9s.

Please consider donating or becoming a sponsor today. Our goal is to raise $5,000.

You may donate directly on the Project Paws Alive website: http://projectpawsalive.org/donate/ .

Hero K-9s are also available for purchase on our website and all proceeds go towards purchasing the K-9 vests needed for the City of Snellville and the City of Porterdale K-9s: http://projectpawsalive.org/k-9-heroes-fundraiser/

Checks can also be mailed to Project Paws Alive, 1911 Grayson Highway, Suite 8-158, Grayson, GA 30017. Please make all checks payable to Project Paws Alive.
