Young girl sells her toys to buy police dog’s bulletproof vests

This is a young girl with more heart than some people I have known.

Kayleigh Crimmins of Newport News might be young but she sure seems to have a plan to try and make sure that police dogs have the same protection that their police handlers do. To do this she has been selling her toys on Craigslist and using the money to buy canine bulletproof vest which she then donates to police departments who need them.

Her most recent purchase will be going to a Newport News sheriff’s department police dog named Vader.

There was round of applause at Tuesday night’s Newport News city council meeting for a local girl taking action and getting results.

Kayleigh Crimmins has been raising money to buy bullet resistant vests for police dogs.

This one will go to a Newport News sheriff’s department K-9 called Vader.

This is the fifth one she has bought with money from selling her toys on Craigslist.

“I think she is amazing I think she is determined I think she loves dogs, and there’s no end to this she’s made that very clear,” says Kayleigh’s mother Lee.

Kayleigh has also started a new project called Cans for K-9’s to help raise more money.
