K9 Rex, K9 Skaza Of Alleghany Co. Sheriff's Office Seek Community Heroes
Alleghany County Sheriff’s office and Non-Profit Keeping K-9s in Kevlar hope to fund Bulletproof Vests for K9 Rex and K9 Skaza.

Covington, VA (Jan. 13, 2022) - For many law enforcement departments, bulletproof vests for K-9s are not in the budget. Instead, departments rely on non-profit assistance to acquire the protective gear. Non-profit Keeping K-9s in Kevlar accepted the responsibility to bring the community together and help fund Alleghany County Sheriff’s Office’s K9 Rex and K9 Skaza for their (bulletproof) Kevlar vests with community raised donations. Each vest costs $2,600. The non-profit needs to raise the $5,200 to help keep both Alleghany County Sheriff office’s K9s safe.

Nonprofits are the way most departments receive K-9 Kevlar vests: K-9 Rex and K-9 Skaza’s workday includes, but not limited to, pursuing the most violent offenders, and taking narcotics off the streets. The Kevlar vest protects against stabbing, shrapnel, and bullets shot from common handguns. Fundraising is continuous to ensure Kevlar vests are purchased for K-9 Rex and K-9 Skaza.

To Donate: Keeping K-9s in Kevlar raises community funds through PAYPAL on their Facebook Page’s blue “Learn More” button.. K-9 Rex and K-9 Skaza will receive 100% of donations to fund their vests. If donations exceed that total when the campaign ends, funds will roll over to the next K9 in need of assistance.
