Do you know any canine police officers and their human partners? I do. And I can tell you, that it would be devastating for them to lose their best friend in the same way it would be for any of us to lose our little furry kids. Being a police officer is heroic. Whether human or canine, they risk their lives on a daily basis to protect ours.
Human police officers have the ability to wear bullet proof vests as a way to minimize their risk. It doesn’t mean something bad can’t still happen, it just means they have improved their odds against a life threatening injury.
Canine police officers also have vests that can be worn. However, because police department budgets are tight, most do not have the funds available to provide this potentially life-saving protection for their canine partners. But there is a solution for that…Go Fund Me. There is already a fundraiser in place, here, in Arizona, but I encourage you to find one where you live….and if you can’t find a fundraiser, maybe you have it in your hearts to start one.
A lot of people know that they can save a life through rescue, but here is a way to save a canine life in another way.
