|When Chula Vista Police Department K-9 handlers make a presentation, they are quite often asked if there is anything someone can do to help the unit. Usually they decline these generous offers, but now the team could actually use some financial assistance in purchasing new protective vests.
The current vests for the six police service dogs are outdated and have become worn out. Replacement vests cost approximately $700 each and the K-9 unit is requesting assistance from interested supporters. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
If you would like to help toward the purchase of the six new vests, please send your tax deductible donation online to www.chulavistapolicefoundation.org (via credit card or PayPal), or by mail to the Chula Vista Police Foundation, 315 Fourth Avenue, Chula Vista, CA 91910. Please write “K-9 vest” in the memo section of your check.
For more information, please contact Sgt. John McAvenia at firstname.lastname@example.org or (619) 691-5224.
