2015 Groupon K9 Vest Recipient #13 - through Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. $10 Groupon campaign now through TONIGHT at 11:59pm Central Time at www.groupon.com/k9 #RIPK9Kye.
K9 Karma is a 2 ½-year old Labrador Retriever Mix. She has been assigned to Deputy Don Whipp of the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office in Missouri since November 2013. Karma is certified in narcotics detection. Deputy Whipp and Karma are assigned to the Eaton County Corrections Division; however they are also called out to assist road patrol with narcotics detection throughout the county as well.
K9 Karma’s demeanor is required to be non-aggressive due to her assignment inside the Corrections Facility in close proximity to inmates. She is very business-like when directed to perform her job both inside the prison and out in the field. Her narcotics detection has been an asset to the Sheriff’s Officer Patrol and Corrections. She has drastically reduced the introduction of narcotics within the facility.
During her time off, Karma enjoys outdoor activities such as running, swimming, and playing fetch. She loves children, visiting the Captain’s office for a treat after a hard day’s work, and carrots. Her only dislike is being put in her cage.

Connecticut Department of Corrections K9 Memorial is located at the Maloney for Training and Staff Development in Cheshire, CT. The K9 Memorial is a life size bronze German Shepherd on top of a granite base. The Connecticut Department of Corrections K9 program began in 1985 with six K9 teams at Somers State Prison.

Dedicated - October 19, 2012

With Memorial Day Weekend upon us folks usually conjure up images of backyard parties and beaches.

But Memorial Day is more than just a three-day weekend marking the unofficial start of summer. It's actually been an official national holiday for over 40 years aimed at remembering those who served in the armed forces.

Here is a brief look at the history behind the holiday

A few years after the end of the Civil War, May 30 was established as "Declaration Day" -- a day to decorates veterans' graves with flowers. May 30 may have been the selected day because flowers would be in bloom throughout the country, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website.

In 1971, Memorial Day was officially declared a national holiday and placed on the last Monday in May, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website says.

In December 2000, the president signed into law The National Moment of Remembrance Act.

"The National Moment of Remembrance encourages all Americans to pause wherever they are at 3 p.m. local time on Memorial Day for a minute of silence to remember and honor those who have died in service to the nation," the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website says.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. remembers and honors those who have served and sacrificed to protect our freedom.

Taz has received a ballistic vest thanks to a nationwide GROUPON EVENT that raised over $335,000.00.
