Congrats to the Port Authority of NY and NJ, and K9 Tessa, our latest recipient of a bullet and stab protective vest! 

Port Authority of NY & NJ Police Department’s K9 Tessa will receive a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. K9 Tessa’s vest is sponsored by The Tack Family of Port Murray, NJ and will be embroidered with the sentiment “Gifted by the Tack Family”. Delivery is expected within eight to ten weeks.

K9 Tessa and her partner, Port Authority Police Officer Bryan Seeley, are an explosives detection team performing extremely dangerous work in an effort to protect the people of New York, New Jersey and the millions using Port Authority transportation facilities.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c (3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 3,700 U.S. made, custom fitted, NIJ certified protective vests, in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a value of $6.9 million dollars.

The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate.
The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $950.00. Each vest has a value between $1,744 – $2,283 and a five-year warranty, and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There is an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States. For more information or to learn about volunteer opportunities, please call 508-824-6978. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provides information, lists events, and accepts tax-deductible donations of any denomination at www.vik9s.org or mailed to P.O. Box 9 East Taunton, MA 02718.
Happy #WorkingDogWednesday!
