Porterdale's K-9 outfitted with new safety vest

Porterdale Police Chief Geoff Jacobs accepts a check for $900 earmarked to purchase a safety vest for the department's K-9 officer. Making the presentation is Cheryl Allen with Project Paws Alive which raised funds and purchased the vest. Looking on is K-9 handler Lt. Jason Cripps with Nina, the K-9 officer which the vest was specifically made for. The vest will protect Nina from gun shots, stabbings and other blunt force trauma such as being kicked, punched or beaten with a weapon. The presentation was made at a recent Porterdale City Council meeting. For more information about Project Paws Alive, go to www.ProjectPawsAlive.org. - Special photo

Hello Readers! I'd like to make a correction to this story. Project Paws Alive most certainly did present us with a ceremonious donation at the council meeting that evening, along with some additional equipment for K9 Nina to use. However, the CONYERS KENNEL CLUB was also present and made a ceremonious donation of almost $1,000.00 towards the purchase of K9 Nina's bulletproof vest! We are so very grateful to both organizations for their generosity and interest in our K9 program! THANK YOU BOTH, VERY MUCH!
