Fundraiser to vest K-9 unit

Posted: Updated:
AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Richmond County Deputies never go anywhere without their bullet proof vests and now they want the same protection for their dogs.

The Richmond County Sheriff's Office wants to raise money for their K-9 unit, enough to provide bullet proof vests for ten dogs.

The non- profit organization "Project Paws Alive" kicked off fundraising this week.

The director told FOX54 the dogs can sometimes face more risks than their handlers.

"You know often times they are sent into situations that their human partners are not and you know unfortunately, they are wounded if not stately injured," said Director Cheryl Allen, Project Paws Alive.  

Deputies hope to raise nearly $10,000.
