Lassen SO K9 ‘Hank’ Donated Protective Vest


Lassen County Sheriff’s Office K9 Hank receives his donation of body armor. The new vest is bullet and stab proof made possible by a charitable donation from a non-profit organization, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. K9 Hank’s vest was sponsored by the 2021 Fallen K9 Hero fundraiser hosted by the nonprofit. You can see embroidered onto the vest the sentiment reading: “In memory of the K9s who served and sacrificed in 2021”.
