Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. and Perrigo Animal Health Provide Ultimate Protection for Mountain Home Police Patrol K-9
OMAHA, Neb. – PetArmor®, a flea and tick brand of Perrigo Animal Health, helped to protect Mountain Home Police Department K9 by donating a bullet- and stab-protective vest.
In most cases, law enforcement agencies do not have the budget to purchase K-9 protective vests because they cost $1,050.00 each. As a result, police dogs are left unprotected while fighting crime.
In partnership with Vested Interest in K9s, a nonprofit organization that provides bullet- and stab-protective vests to police departments nationwide, since 2013, Perrigo Animal Health has donated more than 75 police dog vests to date.
The Mountain Home Police Department donation is benefiting the team listed below:

About Officer Jonathan Griffin and K-9 Benga
Officer Jonathan Griffin has been employed by the Mountain Home Police Department since June 2005 and Benga since May 2010. When Benga’s prior K-9 handler left employment with the Mountain Home Police Department, Officer Jonathan Griffin became Benga’s new K-9 handler during February 2012. Since then, both have worked the streets of Mountain Home as a team providing officer safety, making drug arrests, tracking suspects, and making appearances for public demonstration of the program. The K-9 team assists other area law enforcement agencies when requested. The police department appreciates the donation of a protective vest for our K-9 Benga by Vested Interest in K9s, Inc.
