K-9 Armor started in 2003 in
Marin County, and attended the County Fair
Public Safety Fun Zone sponsored by the Marin
County Sheriff's Office from 2004-2009. During
those years we raised enough for bulletproof
vests that K-9 Armor gave for free to Marin
Sheriff K9 Verona and Terry, to SF Park Police
K9 Hunter and Tref, to Novato PD K9 Raven and
Kyto, to Fairfax PD K9 Boss, to Petaluma PD
K9 Rico and Kilo and to Richmond PD K9 Arrow.
Every one of those police dogs came to the
Fair to shake paws with hundreds of children.
