K9 Bulletproof Vest

Hi! I am Brady Snakovsky and I am 9 years old. I am from Strongsville, Ohio and I am in the fourth grade.  I have a passion for helping police officers especially K9 officers and their handlers. One day I hope to become an officer myself! I started my campaign with a goal of collecting enough funds to purchase one ballistic vest for a K9 in need. Through the support of my family, the community and a great company, Line Of Fire Defence Systems, I was able to not only donate 1, but 4 ballistic vests for K9s.   

These vests are very expensive, at the cost of $1,200. Line Of Fire Defence is kind enough to give me the Law Enforcement cost which allows me to donate more. Even though the vests are costly it is a very important tool all K9's should have. I work directly with the manufacturer who has an innovative ballistic vest that is top of the line. Their technology offers a vest that is lightweight and helps regulate body heat keeping the K9 cool. It provides ballistic and edged weapon protection for vital organs all while allowing complete freedom of movement. These vests allow the K9 to wear it throughout their entire shift and through training days so they can focus on what they do best.  

As I look back at my first goal that I set in 2017 of providing one K9 in need of a vest I am excited at what the future holds. I have learned that there are many wonderful people out there working with my mission to give back. I hope to provide as many vests as I possibly can to the very deserving officers that are out there. Currently, we have a waiting list of 56+ Police Officers who have contacted us in need of a vest. With your help we can help provide them with one. Helping those K9s stay safe as they help us each day in the community is the least I can do. Hopefully one day all K9s are provided with a vest, until then I am here to help those in need of one! Thank you for taking the time to read my campaign and please know I am so very grateful of any contribution you can make!

Thank you,
