The Grand Rapids Police Department's team of K9s are looking sharp and well-protected thanks to some new bulletproof vests which have been donated to the GRPD!

The organization Vested Interest in K9s works to protect police K9s all over the country and the Grand Rapids Police Department is the latest to enjoy a donation from the group.

The Grand Rapids Police Department shared the good news yesterday on Twitter.

The K9 vests normally cost about $2,000 each if they are being purchased by a police department. Vested Interest in K9s is able to purchase them for about $1,000 thanks to a special deal with the manufacturer.

Donate here if you'd like to help more K9s become protected.
