(UNDATED) - Blue Alert Foundation and Blue Line Across America wish to purchase ballistic vests & heat alert systems for K9 Officers who currently serve as a tribute to the 26 canines who were lost in the line of duty during 2015.

In 2015, 26 K-9 Officers gave their lives in the line of duty from across the country. Gunfire contributed to 4 of these losses; 1 as the result of stabbing. Eleven others were lost as the result of heat exhaustion.

The organizations wanted to create a 'walking' tribute to honor these fallen K9 heroes and take advantage of this opportunity to protect as many of K-9 Officers as resources will allow.

Proceeds from t-shirt memorial purchases will be used to outfit as many of our four-legged warriors as possible.

This design was created by Blue Line Across America, working in cooperation with the Blue Alert Foundation.
