SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. – A community event to benefit local police dogs was held in Saratoga Springs on Sunday.
"Protecting the Paws in Blue" is a fundraiser so police department can afford bullet and stab protective vests for local K-9 law enforcement dogs.
The event is free to the public from 10am – 4pm at the Warming Hut Site in the Saratoga Springs State Park.
Vested Interest in K9s Inc. hosted the community event. They are a non-profit organization located in Massachusetts which is dedicated to providing the newest protective vest for K-9s.
Each vest costs $950 which is why community events are needed to help fund the police departments so they can protect their four-legged police officers.
For those who cannot make it to the event, donations can be made on http://www.crowdrise.com/pawsinblue
