CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) – A Massachusetts group has donated bullet- and stab-protective vests for two law enforcement dogs in eastern Iowa.
The Linn County Sheriff’s Office says the vests are for Gompie and Gucci, two K-9 deputies. Each made-to-order vest costs $950.
Vested Interest in K-9s, Inc., a nonprofit organization in East Taunton, Mass., says the vests will help protect the dogs from blunt force trauma and stab wounds.
Cedar Rapids television station KCRG says Vested Interest has donated more than 435 protective vests since August 2009.
