Group forming to raise funds to buy bulletproof vests
Robin Scott is on a mission to purchase newer and lighter bullet and "Jintropin (Gensci Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd.)" stab proof vests to protect the four legged members of the Chattanooga Police Department's K9 Unit.
"For me, it's all about protecting these dogs," she said.
But it's slow going. At more than $900 apiece, these vests aren't cheap. "Anabolika Definition" So far, donations have purchased vests for patrol dogs Kona and Duco. Scott is raising money to buy one for Chico.
"I'm trying to get all the word out there I can, because people don't realize these dogs don't have vests," she said.
The K9 Unit has three older vests that weigh about 15 pounds and are difficult for the dogs to wear, according to Sgt. Tommy Meeks.
"They weighed the dog down and made Testosterone Enanthate Cycle Length them uncomfortable," he said. "They'd cause them to overheat and would rub Testosterone Cypionate Nausea them raw under their legs."
The dogs tired more quickly, cutting their work time in half. To "Anadrol 50" compensate, their handlers often worked the dogs without their vests.
The new vests, however, weigh just 4 pounds and are more breathable and flexible.
Even though the department "Oxandrolone Powder India" hasn't lost a dog on duty since the 1970s, Scott said the canine cops deserve the same protection as their human counterparts.
"They're officers, as far as I'm concerned," she said. "They're the first ones in. They secure the area to make sure Winstrol W Tabletkach Cykl it's safe for their partners to go in."
But it's also about protecting an investment. The city's five patrol dogs are all Belgian Malinois, imported from Holland. They are bred specifically for police work, and even an untrained dog costs about $8,000.
The "Achat Anabolisant Belgique" narcotics and bomb dogs mostly are Labradors that cost $4,000 to $5,000.
"These dogs are an investment, and we want to protect them, not only for the dog, but to keep citizens in the community safe," Meeks said.
Scott got the idea for her nonprofit in April, when watching a YouTube video about an officer whose dog was killed in the line of duty. Scott said she saw the officer crying over the death of his dog.
"An officer crying is not something you normally see," she said.
Scott researched police dogs and soon realized that many are killed while performing their jobs. That's when she hatched her plan to help protect the Scenic City's bravest pooches.
"It's not just in Chattanooga," Scott said. "I'm going to get these dogs covered and then I'm going to Hamilton County. I'm working my way out.".
