The Society has been in the forefront of raising funds and distributing bullet/stab-proof K-9 vests to law enforcement K-9s throughout the country through our Vested Interest Fund. The inspiration for our establishing this fund was Solo, a Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office member, who died in the line of duty. He had a remarkable record of 19 apprehensions and located 11 missing persons – an extraordinary legacy at 3 years of age.

The prices for the vests have soared to $825.00 each, and all donations that are received for that fund are not used for anything other than that purpose. If you would like to help protect a working K-9 in New Jersey or another state, please make a donation to the Vested Interest Fund. If you would like to purchase a vest in honor or in memory of someone, we will be happy to notify the parties involved.
