K9 ballistic vests

At 10 a.m. on Saturday morning, June 23, members of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office K9 Unit will meet with the Evergreen Mustangs Car Club of Vancouver, WA to discuss the fundraising efforts that helped the Sheriff's Office purchase ballistic vests for its K9s. Dogs will be on-hand to show off their new vests.

"Last year, the Evergreen Mustangs Car Club out of Vancouver, WA held a 'cruise-in' fundraiser to help us raise money for ballistic vests for our dogs," explained Sgt. Brad O'Neil of the Sheriff's Office K9 Unit. "They were able to provide us three vests, for K9s Grimm, Ajax and Valli. The vests have finally been made and are in our possession."

At 10 a.m. on Saturday the Evergreen Mustangs bring some of their cars to the Sheriff's Office Brooks Building parking lot (9101 SE Sunnybrook Blvd., Clackamas, OR 97015) [ map ] to discuss their ongoing fundraising efforts. The K9s and handlers will be on-hand for the meeting.

Media outlets are invited to conduct interviews and get a photo-op with the cars and dogs.
