Serving The Breed and Fancy Since 1947  

The German Shepherd Dog Club of Houston has worked diligently to "armor" K-9 Officers throughout the Houston/Galveston area.  Members of the club, lead by Vest Project Chair, Vickie Lewis have garnered support for this VERY worthwhile cause.

In June of 2000, the GSDC of Houston chose to head up a fund raising effort to provide bulletproof vests to the K-9 dogs of the Houston metro area. Since that time, we have been successful in raising over $13,000. With these generous funds donated by individuals and companies of Houston, we have had the pleasure of presenting 30 Ballistic Level II vests to these very deserving dogs. We are extremely proud of this fund raising effort. We are so grateful to everyone who has donated to this very worthy cause. Without the contributions from the caring people of Houston, this would not be possible. We would especially like to thank our very special friends, John & Elaine Pershern who have donated 7 vests to date. John & Elaine have been more than happy to contribute each and every time we have asked them. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts. The following K-9 Units have received vests: Houston K-9 Unit, 18 vests Pasadena K-9 Unit, 5 vests Dickinson K-9 Unit, 1 vest Texas City K-9 Unit, 1 vest Seabrook K-9 Unit, 1 vest South Houston K-9 Unit, 1 vest Polk County Sheriff's Dept, 2 vests Beaumont K-9 Unit, 1 vest. If you would like information or would like to make a tax deductible contribution to the vest fund, please contact us.
