Young boys generally imagine having action-packed careers. Soldiers, Air Force pilots, and police officers are great examples. And for one third-grader from Strongsville, Ohio, this action-packed fantasy was no longer a pipe dream. He got the opportunity to collaborate with numerous police forces in his community.
Brady Snakovsky is a young man who wanted to provide bulletproof vests for K9 dogs. This is an outstanding and laudable goal for a young boy of his age. And it showed his kind and natural attitude toward these cuddly yet brave warriors.
His goal of offering bulletproof vests for his beloved K9 dogs began when he was watching Live PD, his favorite police drama. While he was watching the show, he realized that one of his favorite K9 characters was not wearing a bulletproof vest. Therefore, he informed his mother, Leah Tornabene, of his wish to offer bulletproof jackets for K9s in his town. As a child, he may have believed that purchasing these vests was easy and maybe he thought that there were inexpensive.
Leah did not deny her son’s request and quickly researched the cost of bulletproof jackets. She discovered that these vests cost $1,200 a piece, an amount they cannot afford. But Leah was determined to overcome this obstacle. Therefore, she created a GoFundMe account to raise money for bullet-proof vests for K9 canines, to help make Brady’s dream a reality.
Even though the vests were expensive, Brady and his mother hoped that there were people willing to help them achieve this goal. Fortunately, Brady’s goal inspired many people, and funds flooded in. The mother and son donated $77,000 to purchase bulletproof jackets for K9 canines who risk their lives every day to protect their human companions. One of the fortunate beneficiaries of the vests was K9 units of the Medon Police Department, which expressed gratitude for Brady’s kindness towards their K9s.
Brady’s bulletproof vests have also been distributed to several police stations in his neighborhood, ensuring the safety of more K9s.
