LOUISVILLE – Real Estate Specialist Danna Hinz, of The Hinz Group at RE/MAX Alliance – Louisville, has chosen Vested Interest in K9s as the charity to support in 2017. “As a prior Sheriff’s Deputy, these K9 units are very close to my heart,” said Hinz. “Many agencies don’t have the funding to provide life-saving vests for their animals. I love being able to help in such a vital way, both for them and their handlers.”
Vested Interest in K9s is a non-profit with a special mission to provide state-of-the-art bullet and stab protective vests to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the country. Each vest provides the ultimate protection for K9s and is made in the United States. Vested Interest in K9s has an exclusive rate for these vests, making it possible to provide a vest to one K9 in the United States for a donation in the amount of $1,050. Ordinarily, these vests are valued between $1,795-$2,234.
“We hope to donate 5 to 10 vests this year,” added Hinz. “As a former deputy with the Boulder County Sheriff’s Department, I am excited to learn that the Boulder County Sheriff’s Department was a recent recipient of one of these protective K9 vests.”
Those who become a sponsor of Vested Interest in K9s have the option of having their vest embroidered at no extra cost. Each vest has a five-year warranty. Help protect K9 officers across the country and become a sponsor today by visiting vik9s.org/become-a-sponsor.
