BPD Photo of the Day: BPD K-9 Titan poses proudly in front of a ‘Tree of First Aid’.

The Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog organization donated 15 K-9 first aid kits to the Boston Police Department. Forty items and over 400 pieces are in these kits, ready to assist with minor injuries - like cut paws - to provide immediate care to stabilize a K-9, should major trauma occur, prior to transport to the veterinarian. The kits valued at $ 200 a piece were funded through generous donations from:  @The Positive Dog/Boston, Harvard Dangerfield's 10th birthday bash on Boston Common, Doubletree Suites by Hilton/Boston-Cambridge and general donations to Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog.  To learn more about the Massachusetts Vest-A-Dog organization visit their website at: www.mavestadog.org
