Applaud Use of Protective Vests for Police Dogs

K-9 Unit

Target: Sandy Marcal, President of Vested Interest In K9s Inc.

Goal: Applaud fundraising efforts to purchase protective vests for police dogs.

Sandy Marcal, president and founder of Vested Interest in K9s Inc. has worked for many years to ensure the safety of police dogs. The foundation recently put together a Groupon fundraiser, aimed at purchasing protective vests for these dogs. Each vest costs around one thousand dollars. The fundraiser was highly successful and the foundation purchased several protective vests for distribution to county police stations.

Police dogs are often the first to enter a crime scene, putting them in extremely dangerous and unpredictable situations. These dogs are injured on the job far too often, and these vests will significantly lower their risk of bodily injury. They are both bulletproof and stab resistant, and are expected to lower canine fatalities. The aim of our law enforcement is to serve and protect, which includes protecting our police dogs to the best of our ability.

The efforts put forth by Vested Interest, as well as other organizations aimed at the same goal, are huge steps in the right direction. The public has responded extremely well, and they are also responsible for this accomplishment. Should Vested Interest continue its efforts, perhaps one day it will be a requirement for every police dog to wear a vest before entering a crime scene. Please sign this letter to thank Vested Interest for their tremendous leap forward.


Dear Ms. Marcal,

Vested Interest’s recent efforts to raise money to purchase protective vests for police dogs have not gone unnoticed. It is in everyone’s best interest to have these dogs entering a crime scene with the proper line of defense, just as a police officer does. This is a matter of safety for the dogs, and for the general public. It is extremely important that the dogs continue to lead happy, healthy lives, and this can only happen if they’re well protected on the job.

The ongoing fight to increase the use of protective vests is of the utmost importance, and continues to increase awareness of this issue. Your recent success has awarded several police dogs the protective vests they deserve, and given their partners, as well as the public, peace of mind.

We hope you will continue to fight for the police dogs, and produce positive change for everyone. Thank you for your efforts at Vested Interest in K9s.

  1. These Police Dogs are supposed to be well taken care of as the same way the Police men/women were protected. There should not be any different treatments to be given to these loyal, Police dogs. Because of these Police K-9 companions, several Police men/women have spared their lives while on duty. These faithful K-9s have often, thrown into the front line to confront the killers or the robbers when such dire situation comes up. So it is the Police Departments Humane Duty to save & protect these K-( officers as well. Thanks to the Sandy Marcal, for bringing such brilliant idea to protect the lives of, faithful, Man’s Best Friends & now it is these K- Police Officers. Thank You.
