Many young boys dream of becoming police officers when they grow up but this 9-year-old is already working hard for police departments.
Brady Snakovsky, of Strongsville, Ohio, is not your average 3rd grader. With big aspirations of becoming a police officer, when Brady saw that a K-9 on his favorite cop show, Live PD, was not wearing a bullet proof vest, he wanted to do something about it.
Brady decided to ask his mom if they could buy a vest for a K-9 in need. Brady and his mom quickly learned that the vests were very expensive at $1,200 each so they started the non-profit, Brady’s K9 Fund, and launched a Go Fund Me campaign.
The campaign has been very successful so far. According to his mom, Leah Tornabene, they have raised over $77,000 and have donated 79 vests to various law enforcement agencies, including the Mendon Police Department who tweeted:
“K9 Officer Pichel and K9 Brady would like to thank a very special young man, Brady Snakovsky. Brady donated a LOF Defence StreetFighter Vest to the Mendon Police Department K9 Unit. #BradysK9Fund.”
