I stumbled upon this story on Facebook recently. Way to go, Brady!
Here’s the link to the post from my local news station:
In Ohio, the local news has been following Brady Snakovsky for nearly a year now. At that point, in November 2018, Brady had raised enough money to donate more than 50 vests to K-9s in nine states. That’s incredible!
Bulletproof vests for police K-9s can cost more than $1,000. Brady got the idea when he and his mom were watching an episode of “Live PD,” where a K-9 did not have a bulletproof vest. With his mom’s help, Brady started a GoFundMe.
As of June 2, 2019, Brady has raised enough money to donate 85 vests. Currently, there’s a waiting list of 57 officers whose K-9s need the vests.
Now, Brady’s K-9 Fund is officially a non-profit organization.
The most recent dogs to be vested are K9 Mike, K9 Lemm, and K9 Hoss. They all serve with the MTA Police in New York City.
Other dogs have been vested in Ohio, Connecticut, California, and South Carolina.
I think Brady is an awesome kid! I’m so happy he was inspired to help these amazing dogs, his mom was willing to help him get started, and how his message has spread. Way to go, Brady!
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂

This is such a sweet story & Lord knows we need more of those! As problematic as a lot of police officers can be, the dogs deserve protection.
Thank you for sharing my post!
