  Now you see why it had to be "four-footed officers week", rather than "K9 week" ~ tada, it's Weatherkitty! While we have no evidence that she was in fact ever trained and or/certified as an "officer", she does offer safety messages and works to educate the public through her agency. I'd love to throw in a statistic telling you that "posts with a Weatherkitty result in x% more people paying attention" but while I don't have the numbers it is easy to see that HER posts get more attention than just an average safety message.

  Connect with Weatherkitty on Facebook and read a blog post about her approach to social media here.

What you may now know is that all five of these dogs posted were, through the tireless efforts and fundraising by Crystal Rau, able to be outfitted with ballistic vests! Thank you Crystal for your dedication to these working officers!!
