Sac County Sheriff’s Office K9 Remo has received a bullet and stab protective vest
thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.
K9 Remo’s vest was sponsored by Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. and embroidered with
the sentiment “In memory of K9 Hobbs, Des Moines, IA - EOW 12/12/23”.


Vested Interest in K9s, Inc., established in 2009, is a 501(c)(3) charity 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. This potentially
lifesaving body armor for four-legged K9 officers is U.S. made, custom fitted, and NIJ
certified. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. has provided over 5,514 vests
to K9s in all 50 states at a value of $6.9 million, made possible by both private and
corporate donations.

The program is open to U.S. dogs that are at least 20 months old and actively employed
and certified with law enforcement or related agencies. K9s with expired vests are also
eligible to participate. There are an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout
the United States.

Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. accepts tax-deductible contributions in any amount, while a
single donation of $985 will sponsor one vest. Each vest has a value of $1800.00,
weighs an average of 4-5 lb., and comes with a five-year warranty. For more
