It seems only fitting that dogs helped in the effort to raise money for ballistic vests for K9s.
According to Ceres police, an Aug. 24 fundraiser at a Modesto dog park attracted several hundred people and brought in more than $3,200, enough to buy three vests. Two of them will stay with local departments.
The lucky recipients: Volk of Modesto, Dex of Ceres and Ruger of Orland.
The vests are made to order and will protect the dogs from bullets, knives and blunt-force trauma, Ceres police said. They will be delivered in about 10 weeks.
