K9 Kuso – Burnet Police, Texas

Help K9 Kuso of the Burnet Police Department!

This fundraiser is to provide K9 Kuso with a custom protective ballistic vest and a K9 first aid trauma kit to keep him safe on duty.

K9 Kuso is a 5 year old German Shepherd trained in patrol and narcotics. He is partnered with Sergeant Jeremy Stewart.

The K9 ballistic protective vests are combination bullet and stab-proof containing level IIA ballistic protection and level III spike protection which exceeds the current National Institute of Justice (NIJ) 06 regulations. These vests are cut from the same Kevlar bulletproof cloth as their human partners, covering all the vital organs. These vests help protect the K9s 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 K9s.

Each K9 body armor vest donated through Project Paws Alive is custom sized per K9 and manufactured using the latest technology and materials in order to fit the body shape and size of each K-9 officer.

The vests are designed so that the K9s 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. They are the lightest-weight combo K9 vests currently available.

The Tactical K9 First Aid Field Trauma Kit with Combat Gauze is a military-grade kit designed for use by Law Enforcement, Military, Fire, and Search & Rescue K9 Units.

This kit contains specific supplies needed to treat the K9 for injuries ranging from gunshot and knife wounds to snake bites. The kit provides the necessary tools to address the major traumatic injuries common to K9’s operating in the law enforcement environment as well as common K9 emergencies such as heat injury and toxic ingestion.

Constructed of rugged 500D Cordura with self-repairing zippers and silent 550 cord pulls, the kit is also water-resistant. The MOLLE style webbing and Infrared Signature Reduction make this kit the superior solution whether on daily patrol, tactical missions, explosives details, covert operations, or extended search and tracking purposes.

K9 teams face substantial risks on a daily basis. While emergency care is often readily available to the handler, the same cannot be said of their canine partner. Equipping them with a K9 tactical first aid trauma kit for use in the field can make a huge difference. Distribution of these kits will give the handlers the means to do just that. In addition, everything in the kit can also be used to treat and/or the save the life of a human.

The goal is to raise $1,800.
