Click Here to Help purchase a protective vest for K9 Eddy
K9 Eddy is a one-and-a-half-year old German Shepherd assigned to Deputy Paul Spry of the Cook County’s Sheriff’s Office located in Grand Marais, Minnesota.
The K9 team is certified in both Patrol and Narcotics. K9 Eddy is playful, social and loves to cuddle; but, he is all business when on the job protecting his handler and his community.
Here’s how you can help! K9 Eddy is in need of a multi-threat vest; and, here’s how this equipment both helps Eddy and Deputy Spry on the job!
A multi-threat vest protects against standard issue caliber rounds for common guns and offers additional protection for stabbing weapons, like prison shanks or other blunt force puncture objects. This protection comes in a carrier made of a rip-stop material that helps to deflect punctures as well.
This equipment provides the same level of protection that the human counterparts of these K9s are required to wear for their job. This protection level was selected by the Cook County Sheriff's Office from the two options offered by Hero K9 for optimal protection of K9 Eddy.
Please help the Cook County Chamber of Commerce Foundation fund this equipment for K9 Eddy by making a tax-deductible donation to Hero K9 today.
Donors who prefer to donate by check, please make checks payable to Hero K9 and mail to: Hero K9 Attn: Cook County Chamber Foundation/K9 Eddy P.O. Box 390479 Minneapolis, MN 55439
