When Brady Snakovsky, was just a 9-year-old boy living in Strongsville Ohio, he heard about a K-9 officer that was killed in Cleveland and it broke his heart. He also heard that the dog would have lived if only he had had a vest similar to the one human officers wear while working. So he made up his mind that he would get vests for all the K-9's in Cleveland! Through Brady's K-9 Fund, he’s been able to provide “practical, mission-ready vests” to not only every K-9 in Cleveland but over 130 dogs around the country!
Each of the vests costs about $1,500 and takes about 90 days to make. Now Brady is 10 and he feels more passionate about getting vests for K-9's than ever! “They protect a lot of people, so I just want them to be protected too." And with 60 more K-9s on the waiting list to get one, Brady’s work is far from finished.
One of the most recent dogs to get a vest from the Brady K-9 Fund is Bluffton SC K-9 officer Koda
