While providing both ballistic and edge weapon protection, the STREETFIGHER VEST is also lightweight. In addition, it is buoyant and adaptable to the needs of the K-9 and their handler.
“We are excited to partner with LOF Defense and Brady’s K9 Fund for the Cookout 250 at Martinsville,” said Ray Page, Director of Marketing at Wolfpack Racing. “Through Kyle’s relationships with Sgt. Mark Tappan and K9 Mattis (K9_Mattis), and Officer Phil Ritchey and K9 Raider (K9_raider281) we began the discussion of K9 vests and the lack of budget for them through local Police Departments. Through those discussions the LOF Defense/Brady’s K9 Fund car came to be”.
“Mattis and Raider both use the LOF K-9 STREETFIGHTER VEST and their handlers spoke so highly of it, I knew I had to reach out to LOF for the partnership”, said Page. “My first call was to Leah Tornabene, COO of Brady’s K9 Fund. I pitched her the idea and within a couple of hours she had me on the phone with Rhonda Lind. She is the Director of LOF Defense Systems”.
“Our team is thrilled to announce our most recent partnership with Wolfpack Racing. We provide life-saving body armor for law enforcement and military K9 units. We have been working with Brady’s K9 Fund along with many other community members to help vest K9’s that are in need of this protective equipment. Our ultimate goal is to vest every single K9 officer in North America. We are grateful to be a part of this amazing community that supports our LEO’s, First Responders, and Soldiers”. Said LOF CEO Darren Schulte.
“Through this partnership, we are bringing awareness to and raising funds for K9 officers without proper vest protection,” said Page.
“Brady’s K9 Fund has donated 360 vests to K9 officers, and we want to increase that number in a significant way. Our goal with this partnership is to raise enough money for 100 K-9 vests”. – Kyle Weatherman
