Protecting the Paws in Blue charity event is organized to raise funds for K9s located in the state of New York.
Federal Bureau of Investigations Tactical K-9 Ape was killed in March of 2013 while on duty in the Herkimer, NY standoff. Ape was only two years old and on his first mission. This fundraiser is organized in his memory.
Proceeds will be donated to law enforcement K9s for bullet and stab protective vests. The cost of each ballistic vest is $950 and it has a 5 year warranty. Often times, law enforcement agencies do not have budgets to cover this equipment for our four legged crime fighters.
Your generous donations are tax deductible.
