LATHAM N.Y. – A local business held a fundraiser Sunday to get Albany’s four-legged officers lifesaving equipment.
The Hot Yoga Spa in Latham held the fundraiser to raise money to purchase lifesaving vests for K-9 officers.
K-9 officers put their lives on the line everyday they are at work, going into dangerous situations without knowing what is ahead.
The bullet and stab proof vests the Hot Yoga Spa in Latham fundraised for are provided by Vested Interest in K-9’s.
The Hot Yoga Spa offered class by donation to fundraise for the vests, and all the money donated by class participants went directly to the cause..
The cost for a single vest is a little over $900.
Sunday the fundraiser raised $965 in donations, the Hot Yoga Spa then matched all donations raising a total of $1930.
Due to Sunday’s fundraiser, two vests will be purchased for K-9 officers.
