Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. announces their 2013 color calendar featuring the Worcester County Sheriff’s Department’s bloodhounds Adam and Molly, in the month of June, as well as other Massachusetts police dogs. The calendar is now on sale for $15.00 online and at select retailers. Proceeds from the sales will provide bullet and stab protective vests for police dogs actively working without the potentially life saving equipment.
“We’re really excited to offer this calendar, as it shows a great variety: different law enforcement departments, police dog breeds, and general activities of K9 teams. For example, we have German Shepherd Dogs, Labrador Retrievers, Belgian Malinois and two Bloodhounds in the calendar. In some photos the dogs are in a ‘sit’ or ‘down’, and there’s an action shot of K9 teams tracking and apprehending suspects. In addition, two young girls who raised funds for vests appear on the page with their special police dogs,” explains Sandy Marcal, President of the East Taunton non-profit, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. (VIK9s).
Marcal continues, “Over the past two and a half years, with generous donations from individuals, organizations and businesses and lots of volunteer hours, we’ve helped vest over 106 police dogs, in local police departments, sheriff departments, MA Dept. of Corrections, and MBTA (MA Bay Transportation Authority).
“Protecting K9s is our Priority,” is the motto of Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds to provide bullet and stab protective vests for police dogs throughout Massachusetts and the United States.
