PRLog (Press Release) - Nov. 18, 2012 - Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. announces their 2013 color calendar featuring Massachusetts police K9s. The calendar is now on sale for $15.00 online at www.vik9s.org 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. The East Taunton, all volunteer nonprofit provided 64 police dogs throughout the United States with bullet and stab protective vests in 2011.

“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 three years, with generous donations from individuals, organizations and businesses and lots of volunteer hours, we've helped vest over 121 police dogs, in local police departments, sheriff departments, MA Dept. of Corrections, and MBTA (MA Bay Transportation Authority) and throughout the United States.

In September 2012, Vested Interest in K9s hit a milestone of donating $100,000 in vests. As a priority, Massachusetts police K9s needs are met initally, then New England area K9s followed by out of State police K9s.

There are presently over 30 law enforcement dogs waiting for a bullet and stab protective vest, which costs $1006 each.
