WALLINGFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– Two of Connecticut’s four legged K9 officers are receiving bullet and stab protective vests thanks to a charitable donation from Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.
Wallingford Police Department’s K9 Tate has received one of the vests. The vest was sponsored by an Anonymous Sponsor and is embroidered with the saying “Honoring those who served and sacrificed.”
Rocky, a three and a half-year-old Shepherd, out of Troop C in Tolland, will soon get one of these vests as well.
