Mission

Started in 2005 Wisconsin Vest-A-Dog is a non-profit, tax deductible organization endorsed by the Wisconsin Veterinary Association. The goal of the VEST-A-DOG program is to provide a bullet proof and stab proof vest for every police dog in Wisconsin. The vests are the only protection these K-9 officers have until their human partners arrive on the scene. Every donation is used for the purchase and shipping of vests and other protective equipment.
