Brady Snakovsky, a 10-year-old boy from Ohio, has been raising money to buy protective vests for K-9 officers all over the country. Through Brady's K-9 Fund, he’s been able to provide “practical, mission-ready vests” to 130 dogs. The most recent is Kubo, a K-9 officer with the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, who works in both bomb and patrol units.
Each of the vests costs about $1,500 and takes about 90 days to make. And with 60 more K-9s on the waiting list to get one, Brady’s work is far from finished. “They protect a lot of people, so I just want them to be protected too,” he says of the K-9s.

Earlier this year, he was named ASPCA's Kid of the Year!
"Ten-year-old Brady Snakovsky and his mom founded Brady's K9 Fund after Brady learned Ohio's K9 officers could not afford potentially life-saving, but expensive ballistic vests. Brady committed himself to raising funds to protect the animals who so loyally protect us. Since it was launched, Brady's K9 Fund has provided vests for  K9 officers in multiple states, and his GoFundMe page has brought in nearly $130,000 to advance the mission of protecting all police dogs from gun violence. For identifying a life-threatening vulnerability for local police dogs and committing himself to their protection, Brady Snakovsky is the 2019 ASPCA Kid of the Year."
