The same event kicked off at Especially for Pets in Medway on December 1 & 2 and took in over $1150. The East Taunton non-profit 's mission is to raise funds for bullet and stab protective vests for law enforcement dogs. They focus on Massachusetts police K9s as a priority, then New England police K9s, and K9s throughout the United States. Proceeds from the Medway event will provide a bullet/stab protective vest for the Holyoke K9 currently in training. The custom embroidered vest is $1031.00
“Especially for Pets is extremely proud to partner with Vested Interest in K9s to raise money to vest police dogs. We are honored to help protect these canines who put their lives on the line for us. We are thrilled that one weekend event with Santa and the Grinch brought in enough money to vest one dog; and we could not have done it without the support of our vendors and customers. We look forward to our next event in Canton on December 8 & 9, and sincerely hope that we can raise enough money to vest another dog" said Amy Kinne, Director of Business Development for Especially for Pets.
