WHEELING -

The K-9 Unit in Wheeling's police department is receiving donations to help make a purchase that will keep their dogs safe.

A nationwide 'Groupon' event has raised over $300,000 so the department can buy bullet and knife proof vests for their K-9's. The purchases were made possible by the group 'Vested Interest in K9's,' a national non-profit organization that was selected by Groupon.

Donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 9, East Taunton, Massachusetts, 02718.
