Come Home Safe Together

Mission

Our goal is to provide mission ready ballistic/stab proof vests to police K9's across America. We provide a vest the K9 can wear during their entire shift, not just when they know they are walking into an emergency situation.

Notes from the nonprofit

We would just like to thank each and every person who chooses to help Brady's K9 Fund by donating. This is an organization that I can assure to you that the funds are truly appreciated. Each and every one of our handlers are very moved and grateful when they receive a life saving ballistic vest for their partner. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Our nation is at a war with crime and our police - Men, Women and K9's are on the front lines. Not all police K9's are protected with ballistic vests. We are here to help vest as many police K9's with a mission ready, full shift ballistic vest.

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

To provide a ballistic and stab proof vest to as many police K9's across the United States that we can.

We have teamed up with a manufacturer that provides K9's with life saving body armour that protects major vital organs, helps prevent heat exhaustion and allows your K9 to retain full agility and work drive. We collect donations in order to provide these vests to police K9's across the US

The more that people hear about Brady's K9 Fund and donate the more police K9's will be protected. We try to notify people by word of mouth, our website, social media and a lot of hours trying to raise funds through donation letters.

It is simple to know our organizations progress, by the number of vests we donate. As soon as we collect enough funds to purchase a vest we immediately notify a police officer who has been added to our waitlist and purchase their K9 a ballistic vest.

So far we have received $75,000 through a donation platform and have used 100% of the funds to donate the StreetFighter vest to K9's across America. Now we have launched a website and we will continue to provide K9's ballistic vests through profits we receive on that website.
