Donations collected in stores during Tree of Hope go directly to animal welfare groups in the areas the donations are made so that they may continue their work in making better lives for animals.

    Last year more than $4 million was raised during Tree of Hope. This has been a tough couple of years for the animals and our non profit partners and they are grateful for your continued support and the priority that you’ve shown through your donations.

  • Tayte Stark's fund raiser in memory of K9 Kye, Oklahoma City
    Mon, Oct 13 2014 - Fri, Oct 31 2014
    12:00 AM - 11:59 PM
    ,

    I am helping to raise money so the Oklahoma City K-9 unit dogs can have vests just like my daddy.

    Taytekyebike

    My daddy and Kye went to work on August 24th, 2014 like any normal night. They worked very hard that night together. Kye didn’t get to come home like my daddy did. He was stabbed by a man and he died on August 25th in the hospital.

    My mommy told me that Kye saved my daddy’s life that night. I was so so sad that my friend didn’t get to come home to me too. My first funeral that I ever had to go to was his. It was so sad. I put my sunglasses in his coffin because I was afraid that heaven was too bright for him. I saw how many people loved him. People gave me lots of hugs and told me they were so sorry I lost my friend. There were so many people there to thank Kye for being a hero. I don’t want another little girl to have to go to a funeral like I did. I would like it if all the doggies could be safe.

    So,I am helping to raise money for bullet and stab proof vests for dogs. My wish is that every OCPD dog and every other dog that works like my daddy’s dog, can wear a vest too.

    In my hometown, I am selling my handmade bracelets that will also go toward buying vests. I am only 5, but I am trying my hardest to help these dogs be safe. I hope you will too. Thank you for your time!

    Here’s how to help now through Halloween:  http://www.razoo.com/story/K9kye

    In Memory of K-9 Kye, Oklahoma City Police Department, OK

    On August 28, 2014 Belgian German Shepard, K-9 Kye with the Oklahoma City Police Department was laid to rest with full honors after being killed in the line of duty. During the funeral service Kye’s human partner, Sgt. Ryan Stark, leaned over the 3-year-old dog’s flag-draped casket to give his K-9 protector a final goodbye.

    The tragic sequence of events started when police began a high speed car chase in pursuit of a suspect. The suspect led police on a 30 minute chase before troopers blew out his tires and he tried to make a break for it on foot. Sgt. Stark released Kye while chasing down the suspect. Stark said Kye had caught up to the man and he was about to call him off when he realized the assailant was stabbing the K-9.

    Sgt. Stark rushed Kye to a veterinarian and stayed by his side throughout the night. Kye underwent emergency surgery for multiple stab wounds. He died the following day of cardiac arrest. “Dogs are very special,” one police officer commented.” They love us unconditionally. We will train a new K-9 and that dog will do a good job, but Kye was pretty special to us.”

    K-9 Kye was not wearing a bullet or stab protective vest.

    What We Need

    It will take each of you donating to help us hit our target. Whether it’s $10 or $1,000, every amount helps.  Help vest our K9 Heroes

    • Our goal is to raise $100,000 through this campaign to provide up to another 100 vests
    • Contributions made are 100% tax deductible
    • Share this campaign with your friends, family and colleagues to help us promote this cause and encourage others to donate
    • The cost of each vest is $1,000 which includes the bullet and stab protective vest and direct shipping to the law enforcement agency. They come with a warranty of 5 years.
    • Contributors who donate the whole cost of a vest ($1,000) will be able to place a custom embroidery on the vest whether it be your personal name, a company name, a personal message, etc.

     

    Your Impact
    In the past 10 years, bullet and stab injuries have caused 60% of police dog deaths. K9s are trained to a high level of obedience. They are expected to follow all commands of their handler. A K-9 officer faces the same, if not a greater risk than human officers as they are often sent in ahead of their human counterparts to apprehend suspects or investigate dangerous situations.

    Unfortunately, there are not enough funds for most agencies to afford the cost of protecting our 4-legged heroes.

    Please join our mission to provide law enforcement K-9s with this life saving body armor.

    Did you know in most cases law enforcement agencies do not have budgets to provide vests for their four legged K-9 officers? As a result, in 2013, 17 K9s have lost their lives in the line of duty in the U.S.A., one of which was K9 Kody, from the St. Paul, Minnesota PD (source: www.odmp.org).

    Our goal to to raise the $9500 necessary to provide vests for all 10 K9s with the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office (MN). If we surpass our goal, those funds will go toward providing vests to other K9s in need, through VIK9s efforts.

    Agility has many benefits for both dog and owner: it builds a strong dog-owner bond, provides intellectual stimulation and an energy outlet for the dog, and helps both dog and owner keep in good physical condition.   Various obstacles such as jumps, weave poles, dog walk, open tunnel, a-frame, see-saw and pause table are amongst the challenges for the agility team.
