CHILTON COUNTY, Ala. (WSFA) - The Chilton County Sheriff’s Office is raising money to purchase bulletproof vests for their K-9 officers.
The sheriff’s office said they are raising money after one of their K-9′s, officer Missile, was shot and wounded while tracking down a suspect in Thornsby last week. Missile is expected to recover.
This is the second bad injury Missile suffered, deputies said
The sheriff’s office set up a GoFundMe page. They’re hoping to raise $5,000, which is enough to buy vests for all of their K-9 officers.
