Help K9 Azzurri of the Tustin Police Department!
This fundraiser is to provide K9 Azzurri with a custom protective ballistic vest to keep her safe on duty.
K9 Azzurri is the departments first female canine, and she is partnered with Officer Leah Barrett. K9 Azzurri is a Belgian Malinois from Europe and is three years old.
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 K-9s.
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 goal is to raise $1,400 to provide the vest.
All donations and sponsorships are tax-deductible.
