Kutz said he and his wife, along with family and friends, started HOWL to help buy safety equipment for emergency service K9s, in Allentown. But after talking with police department handlers and seeing news reports of police dogs killed in service, the group began to explore purchasing protective vests for police dogs.
"We asked many handlers why the dogs didn't have vests like the officers did," Kutz wrote in an email. "Most said it was because they were too bulky and hindered the dog doing his job."
HOWL learned of bullet-proof and stab-proof custom-fit vests for police dogs, made by a company in California, which do not hinder the dogs in their work.
So far, HOWL has helped provide a customized vest for two area police dogs, including Salisbury Police Department's K9, Fonzie.
