This K-9 Puppy’s Adorable Picture Is Just The Start of An Amazing Calendar

Massachusetts Vest-a-Dog, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing support to MA police dogs, recently had a photoshoot for their 2015 calendar.

Proceeds support Massachusetts police dogs. Vest-a-Dog's primary goal is to make sure every MA K-9 has a bulletproof vest.

According to their website, they've provided almost 350 vests, which range from $1,006 to $2,400.
"While law enforcement agencies provide bullet-resistant vests for their human officers, they are unable to fund vests for K-9 officers. As K-9s are trained to give up their lives to protect their partners and all of us, we believe it is every bit as important to protect them." - Protect-a-Vest's "Why it matters" page
